PATTERN NOTES
Self-shading Poems makes this addictive colorwork hat shine. Sized baby through adult, this hat makes the perfect selfish project or a quick gift. Baby size is shown in Wisdom Yarns Poems color Chevron 616 and Universal Yarn Deluxe Worsted Superwash color 715 Teal Viper.

This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. Color changes are achieved through the stranded method of knitting. You may wish to place a stitch marker between each pattern repeat. Use a contrast color marker to distinguish the beginning of the round from pattern repeat markers. ¬

This pattern uses the 1x1 long-tail tubular cast-on method for a neat edge. There are many tutorials available online for this technique. If in doubt, use another stretchy cast-on technique.
