A tribute to the iconic baddies of Doctor Who! Stylised enough to be mistaken for a geometric design by the uninitiated, stealthy Daleks are stationed right around the hat, to guard your head from the cold.
The colourwork design uses a combination of solid-colour rounds with occasional slipped stitches, and stranded-colourwork rounds. Using both techniques avoids the need to deal with long floats for most of the design, and makes this a fairly quick and straightforward knit.
The coordinating INSULATE! mittens pattern is now available (also free to download).
Materials: DK-weight yarn in two colours. Approximately 70 yards (90 yards for size L) of your main/background colour, and 50 yards (60 yards for size L) of your contrasting colour.
Sizing: S (to fit 16-19” head), M (to fit 19-22” head), L (to fit 22-25” head). Additional sizes can be achieved by adding or subtracting another 16-stitch repeat (about 3”).
Pattern is for personal use only.
