This hat was inspired by a knitted bag given to me by Kate Braestrup, author of the book “Here If You Need Me”.
I made this hat with scraps of Noro Kureyon, but you can use two different colorways of Kureyon.
The finished hat weighs about 2.6 ozs, which is roughly equivalent to 158 yards of Kureyon.
If you have difficulties with the knitted braid section, you might want to look at alternative directions for this technique (called Latvian braid) found in this pattern or this tutorial from Siskiyou Knits.
