Description
This cute little hat is made using shadow knitting. You can see sections of the hat fade in and out as the wearer moves around. The pattern gives row-by-row instructions for all sizes.

The effect is best with two yarns that have high contrast.

Skills taught in this pattern:

  • How to do shadow knitting.
  • How to do a 3-needle bind-off (photo instructions).

Really Clear Skill Rating:
Level 2: You’re becoming fairly independent with knitting. You are comfortable with knitting, purling, and perhaps a few basic stitch patterns. You might need an explanation for a technique here and there rather than having the entire pattern being step-by-step.
