The perfect hat for special DK or worsted yarns. This design is ideal for semi-solid colours. Worked in two shades, the strands of yarn look like they have been inked over the top of the other.

Worked in just one colour, you can make the perfect cosy hat from one snuggly skein. Worked in the round, it’s a quick, unisex gift.

Knitted in the round, they are easy-intermediate projects.
