Stripes in the round often require care to avoid a jog. In these hats the stripes travel helically around the hat with no need to worry. You begin a stripe in each of 4 locations on the first round and spiral round and round through the hat to bind-off.

Easily begun on a 16” circular, you will transfer the stitches to double-pointed needles for the decreases, working double decreases in the center of each needle for clean and uncomplicated stitching. ENJOY!
