Fraser Fir is a stranded colorwork hat. It comes in two styles, a beanie (shown in blues/greens) and a slightly longer slouch (shown in natural/green). It is knit from the top down, in the round.

Colorwork gauge can vary significantly from individual to individual. It is important to check your gauge and adjust your needle size as necessary.

I recommend using wooden dpns for this hat. They are less likely to fall out when there are small numbers of stitches on the needles.
