Nothing fancy. I whipped this up on the fly to test out the new 16" circs and to experiment with creating a pattern of holes using a combination of increases and decreases.
I also used the decreases to create a sort of swirl pattern on the top.

I tried out the two circs method for doing the decreases once it got too small for the single circ and have to say that I really liked it. That may well become my favorite small diameter technique.

It looks great! Fancy but certainly not feminine.
