Cloverfield is worked in the round with stranded colourwork technique. Hat begins with an optional tubular cast on. The colourwork part uses mostly 2 colours: a background colour, which can be your favourite neutral, and a foreground colour for the clover motifs. A tiny amount of a 3rd colour is used as a pop.
Please note that the colourwork pattern is charted only.
