Notes

This hat was so enjoyable to knit. I think it took me longer to knit the ribbing than the colorwork, since it’s so mindless. This was my second time knitting colorwork, and I think I have the hang of holding two colors at once continental, plus trapping my floats properly. My tension could do with some improving, but I’m happy with how it turned out.

Love how the Heuchera knit up, it’s a shame it’s discontinued.

If I knit this again, I’d use the US 6 needles for the whole hat and do half the brim so that it doesn’t fold up. It’s a bit big on me!
