The colors and the yarn do all the work in Silver and Gold. Worked in three colors on a natural background, your color combinations are endless. The delicious softness of the single-ply extra fine Merino wool makes the hat a delight to wear. Designed to be worn with the brim folded double and pulled down over the ears.

Fits head sizes 18, 20, 22 and 24 inches (45.7, 50.8, 55.9, and 61 cm); designed with negative ease.

Skills Needed
Working with two colors; working in the round; reading colorwork charts; increasing; decreasing.

Hat uses 4 colors - up to 200 yds of the Main Color and Contrasting Color 1, and up to 100 yards of Contrasting Colors 2 and 3. Color suggestions for Manos del Uruguay Maxima: 1 skein each in Foil (MC), Natural (CC1), Kohl (CC2), and Saffron (CC3).

Needles & Gauge
Use smaller needles for the brim if you like a more snug fit, or use larger needles throughout for a more relaxed fit.
