Extra Notes

The whole pattern is written and charted.

There are no complex techniques used in this hat, except for a somewhat uncommon increase method; find tutorials for that here on leethalknits.com.

There is also a video tutorial for weaving in ends as you knit, which may be helpful if you’re making a multi-yarn striped version.

The pattern includes a 1x1 ribbing modification option; the dark orange + aqua wide-striped sample used this mod.
