For pattern support please go to the help thread here.

Jelka is a casual hat, worked in the round from the folded brim to the top. The cute pattern on this hat is knitted with only one color on any given round. Working slip stitches, you get a beautiful colorwork without having to carry two threads in one round, making it the perfect introduction to colorwork. An optional pompom is worked last.
