Stranded knitting is represented in the color knitting chart.
This pattern requires the knitter to work knit, purl, and decrease stitches in the round for the basic hat shape. This pattern does not recommend a particular method for knitting in the round.

Cascade 220, Dream in Color Classy, Madelinetosh Vintage or your favorite worsted weight wool or wool-blend yarn. Yardage listed is based on the entire skein. In practice, the hat does not use an entire skein of any of the colors.
