Designed to use the leftovers from the Crossed Furrows Cowl, although any yarns will do! This cozy hat pattern includes instructions for both a two-colour and a three-colour version, and both slouchy and beanie styles. The colour work is simple: you use only one colour per round and let slipped stitches do the work for you.

Both written and charted instructions are included. There are 7 pages in the pattern, but only two need to be printed per version.

Skills Used
•alternate cable cast on
•knit and purl
•slipping sts purlwise

Tests for the baby and toddler sizes used approximately 60 yds/55m Colour A, and about 5-8 yds/4-7m of the other colours.

Tests for the adult sizes used 75-95 yds/69-87m for Colour A, 14-20 yds/13-18m for Colour B, and 8-11 yds/7-10m for Colour C.

Colour Choices
This pattern provides two options for the brim, a 2-colour and a 3-colour version. For the 3-colour version I recommend choosing a light for Colour A, a dark colour for Colour B, and a medium for Colour C. This shows the stitch pattern to best effect, especially in terms of mimicking a plaid, but enjoy swatching and making your own combinations!

This pattern has been test knit.
