The motif in this fun and quick-to-knit hat was inspired by the repeating geometric motif around an illuminated “I” in the Scriptores historiae Augustae. This manuscript is from 1475 in Milan, and was printed by Phillipus de Lavagna.
Note: This pattern is part of a collection of accessories built around a theme of medieval illumination. You can purchase the patterns individually or as an entire collection: Whitework: Accessories inspired by medieval illumination
