Yarn: Kettle Yarn Co. Beyul (4ply / fingering weight; merino wool, baby yak, silk; 366 m / 400 yds per 100 g skein)

A: Yurt; 1 (1, 1) skein

Gauge: 33 sts & 36 rows = 10 cm / 4” over two-colour pattern on 3 mm needles after blocking.

Needles: 2.5 mm / US 1½ AND 3 mm / US 2½ knitting needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: Stitch marker, 6 cm / 2¼” pompom maker or cardboard (optional)

Notes: Two skeins of Beyul should be sufficient to knit two hats by reversing the colours for the second hat. Be aware of colour dominance and be consistent when holding the yarn to avoid this becoming an issue.
