24 sts & 26 rows = 10cm / 4” over twisted rib pattern, in the round unstretched after blocking.

Needles: 4mm / US 6 circular needle, 40cm / 16” length AND needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 1 stitch marker, 2 cable needles, tapestry needle, pom pom maker (optional)

Notes: Timbre is knit in the round from the brim upwards. The criss-crosses are achieved by working a slip stitch pattern and a cable that
crosses in both directions. Either one or two cable needles may be used, depending on your level of comfort with cabling without cable needles.
Yarns A and B are held together throughout, except during the criss-cross pattern when certain sts are worked with yarn B only.
