Skelter was our 8th annual Mystery Hat-a-Long!

The Hat is designed to be worn low, so that the split brim can sit snugly on the neck, and the brim cover the ears and hug the face for a warmer, more stylish version of a chullo Hat.

Skelter ist so konstruiert, dass sie tiefer getragen werden kann, so dass der geschlitzte Rand direkt im Nacken zu sitzen kommt, das Bündchen die Ohren bedeckt und die Mütze vorn ins Gesicht gezogen wird. Eine wärmere, schickere Variante der bekannten Chullo-Mütze!

Von unten nach oben in Runden gestrickt, die Anleitung enthält 5 verschiedene Größen.

88 (110, 128, 162, 189) yd/81 (101, 117, 148, 172) m
63yd/58m for the pompom (optional; can also be a different yarn, leftovers etc).
39yd/36m for a 6x6in/15x15cm swatch in Garter St.
Worsted weight, multi-plied yarn.
