The parabola is one of those mathematical ideas that actually havereal-life occurrences: a bouncing ballwill form a parabolic arc in the air; thestreams from water fountains shapethemselves into parabolas;suspension bridge cables also followparabola-shaped curves.
I created this design with the gracefulswoop of parabolas in mind. Parabolais an easy hat with lines resemblingthe elegant curve and subtle verticalcables of suspension bridges.Twisted stitches accentuate the stronglines of the ribbing as well as makethe hat very stretchy. Parabola alsohas another twist: it looks as goodinside out as right side right.
