Sometimes, I want to bake a treat but am low on energy or time or both. On those days, I turn to the fruit galette, a simple, rustic pastry that is always a hit at home or at a gathering. It’s an easy bake with high impact.

And like the fruit galette, this hat is meant to be an easy knit with major visual appeal. Its simple, all-over texture lets you settle into a soothing rhythm while you work, but the crown shaping has echoes of a big, cheerful flower. Everything looks much more complicated than it is, with the result that you get a mellow knit while everyone else thinks you’ve undertaken something very complex.
