In Transit hat pattern by Allison O’Mahony

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

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

S/M (M/L) to fit 20.5-22 (22-23.5)”/52-56 (56-60) cm head circumference with 0-1.5”/0-4 cm negative ease

Shown in size M/L with no ease for a relaxed, slouchy fit. For a snugger fit, choose a size with about 1-1.5”/2.5-4 cm of negative ease.
