Knitting in the round, working with two colors, reading a chart, increasing, decreasing, binding off.

One size, adult medium.

Note: The chart repeat is too large to easily scale sizing up or down an inch or two. The best way to achieve a size other than what is listed is by changing the gauge. For example, to make an adult small hat with a 20” circumference, aim for a gauge of 29 stitches = 4” / 10 cm; for an adult large with a 23” circumference, use 25 stitches = 4” / 10cm as the target gauge.

Finished measurements
