Pattern Description from “I’ve recently grown to love spinning my own yarn and there’s really nothing more delightful than spinning and knitting a beautifully hand dyed fiber. I wanted to find a stitch pattern that would really highlight the gorgeous colors in my yarn and a slipped stitch pattern seemed just the way to go.

However, you don’t have to be a spinner to make this pattern. You can substitute any variegated sock weight yarn to get great results.

This hat can be knit flat or in the round and if you don’t like the rolled edge at the bottom, just work a few extra rows of ribbing instead. The options are unlimited.
And finally, if you want to use handspun, but your yarn is a little thicker, I’ve offered suggestions for customizing the fit. You’ll see them indented and italicized.“
