With a stranded colorwork motif inspired by the metal work adorning some of Pittsburgh’s bridges and riverside walkways, this hat knits up quickly and has the added benefit of a double layer of warmth around the forehead and ears thanks to stranding on the inside.

To knit this pattern, you need to know how to:

  • work in the round,
  • work twisted ribbing,
  • read and work from a colorwork chart, and
  • do basic decreases (k2tog).

The colorwork motif used in this hat is charted only.

Yarn estimates:
Main color: approximately 95 (130, 155) yds./87 (119, 142) m
Contrast color: approximately 35 (40, 55) yds./32 (36.5, 50) m
