This spiral shell rasta hat is my first design with Paton's Canadiana, The New Generation. I really love this yarn because it is so soft and is very easy to work with. The yarn is a little thinner than the old version of Paton's Canadiana. I used an off-set shell stitch in order to create the spiral effect of the pattern. The crochet pattern is pretty straightforward and should be easy enough for a beginner to follow.
