In Transit is a basic hat with a clever, transitional colourwork pattern. The zigzag colourwork is based on a simple, two-colour salt and pepper fair isle pattern. Working the pattern over an odd number of stitches hides the jog that naturally occurs when knitting stranded colourwork in the round; a seemingly simple detail that provides polished results!

In Transit can be worked in two highly contrasting colours that stand out, or in two similar colours for a more subtle look.
