Recommended size: US 3 / 3.25mm

Size B (for Ribbing)
One 16” / 40cm circular needle, one size smaller than Size A
Recommended size: US 2 / 2.75mm

Size C (for optional Tubular Cast-On)
One 16” / 40cm circular needle, two sizes smaller than Size A

Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: Stitch marker, cable needle (if working tubular cast-on), pom-pom maker (optional)

Notes: Dipyramid is a two-colour fair isle hat knit in the round from the bottom up. This hat features a deep brim in 2x2 ribbing that is worn folded back, and a geometric colourwork motif that continues through the crown decreases. An optional tubular cast-on and jaunty pompom provide polished finishing touches. Work the ribbing in the main colour and the pompom in the contrast to emphasise the gradient effect, or invert them for a bigger graphic punch.

Colourwork pattern is charted only.
