This is a fun knit, requiring a bit of effort, but not too much. Just enough to keep your interest throughout the project!

You’ll quickly get a hang of the method of working those nice zigzag travelling stitches without a cable needle. I definately liked that!

Materials: Visjögarn from Östergötlands Ullspinneri: 0.75 skeins = 75g = 230m (245 yards) – yarn held double. Or the same amount of Sport/5ply yarn, doubled.

Eco Ull from Marks & Kattens: 1.5 skeins 75g = 160m (135 yards) or about the same amount of any other Aran or Heavy Worsted/10ply yarn. I recommend you to pick a yarn that gives you a firm drape at this gauge, rather than a loose drape.

Needles: Circular 40cm/16” US 7- 4.5mm and US 9 - 5.5mm needles (or/and DPN’s) or size needed to obtain gauge. Tapestry needle.
Gauge: 16 sts to 10 cm/ 4” on size US 9 – 5.5mm needles over stockinette sts. 17 sts over pattern sts, but the material is quite stretchy so don’t worry about the size. I have a 58cm/23” head and the hat fits me well.
Size: Teen - Adult (fits head size 55-59cm).
Finished measurements: Circumference 50 cm/19½” (unstretched) and length 23cm/ 9”.

I hope you like it!
