Notes
The hat calls for a provisional cast on. If you’re unfamiliar with this technique, you can find helpful explanations on sites like Knitty and VeryPink.

When knitting the Woven Pattern, be sure the tension of the floats at the front of the work is not too tight. Tight floats will cause the fabric to pucker.
