Well, not so new. It took me a year to write the pattern, haha.

But it is pattern  99

**Dove stone** is a hat worked bottom up and seamlessly in the round. It starts with a clever and neat way to make a tubular cast on in a contrasting color. It has a cable stitch pattern that gradually decreases to shape the crown. It can be made as a ‘light’ slouchy hat or blocked on a plate for a beret shape.
