Traveling twisted stitches lend this close-fitting beanie a delicate touch.

When choosing yarn for this project, note that smooth yarns with good stitch definition will show off the traveling stitches the most clearly.

While the recommended yarn, Quince & Co. Chickadee, is classified a sport weight, it is a heavy sport knit to a DK weight gauge in this pattern. Other sport weight yarns may be too fine here, therefore DK weight is recommended for yarn substitutions.
