I’ve recently started up with the local roller derby team. Inspired by our fantastic new jerseys, I wanted to make a hat that would show my love for derby, while coordinating with the jerseys (as well as hiding post-bout helmet hair!). This pattern is done in NOtown Roller Derby colors, but naturally can be adapted to any color scheme of your choosing.

This pattern is knit flat because it uses a combination of fair isle and intarsia techniques. There are 3 different versions - the first is a regular beanie style and has two skates, one placed on either side of the head, the second is also a regular beanie style with a single skate on the front, and the third uses a 3 needle bind off and has some funky tassels on it.
