There is a little bit of stranded/Fair Isle knitting involved in this pattern. Hopefully it’s just enough to keep it interesting but not enough to be overwhelming.

For that reason, this pattern is intended for knitters with advanced beginner skills or higher. A basic understanding of stranded knitting is needed, but other than that you only need to know how to knit, purl, and knit two stitches together.

Finished Hat Measurements:
20 inches in circumference
