Pattern notes
This hat is knitted in the round, with a travelling twisted stitch pattern that
continues seamlessly around the hat. There are special instructions for moving the start of round marker to ensure that the travelling stitches can continue around the hat. The instructions are provided in both charted and written formats.

Errata
On round 9 of the written instructions for the crown shaping it should say 1/1 LT and not 1/1 RT. The chart is correct as published.
