Knitting Crosscheck? Come join the Winterlong KAL in the Blue Bee Knits group!

Crosscheck is part of the Hat Trick ebook, a collection of three simple unisex hat patterns designed to be knit at a wide range of gauges, with yarn weights from fingering to bulky.

When two dynamic slip stitch patterns collide, the result is Crosscheck: an intriguing hat with fantastic texture and crisp ribbing. The stitch pattern is easily memorized and simply flies off the needles. Knit it up as either a snug beanie or a slouchy hat; conversion instructions in the pattern allow you to use any gauge, assist you in using up every bit of yarn.
