Description:
The hat is worked in one piece with colourwork in 6 different colours. The colourwork is designed with slipped stitches, so you only knit with one colour at a time. The colourwork is shown in a chart in two ways: the way you knit it on the left side, and how it will look afterwards on the right side. The pattern is ideal for left-over yarn and for “I-am-afraid-of-faire-isle”-people, like me.

The pattern is available in English.

// approx. 5 (10, 15)g / 10 (20, 30)m / 11 (22, 45)y

Yarn recommendation:
I like the surface of the istex lettlopi. But if you prefer a softer touch, you can also use Cascade 220 instead.
Colour B - F is ideal for using some left-overs.

German description:

Diese wunderschöne Mütze mit farbenfrohem Webmuster verscheucht jeden Winterblues. Das Farbenspiel wird durch ein Webmuster erzeugt, das heißt, man hat immer nur einen farbigen Faden in der Hand.

Das Muster eignet sich auch sehr gut für Wolle Reste, und perfekt geeignet auch für all diejenigen, die zwar bunte Strickmuster mögen, aber von Norwegermustern überfordert sind… so wie ich :)
