This pattern is sold in the Pinwheel Hat Pattern Ebook with my ’Top Down Pinwheel Beanie’ pattern and the 10ply (worsted) version of this pattern.

This hat is knit in the round from the top down. It was designed to co-ordinate with the Pinwheel Sweater for children’.

I have used rainbow gradual gradient dyed merino for my daughters’ hat to give a rainbow effect with a gradual change between the colours. A similar rainbow effect could be made using a small amount of different colours in the same yarn ie red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

Techniques Used:
Emily Ocker’s Circular Cast on
Magic Loop
Crocheting a chain (optional)
Knitting an i-cord

This pattern is intended for personal home use only. Commercial use of this pattern is permitted only through a cottage license (knitting for charity does not require a license).
