Branching out into new possibilities, this geometric fauna inspired pattern is the perfect introduction into the world of Roositud inlay.


This hat is knit in the round from the bottom up beginning with a two colour twisted cast on followed by a 1x1 rib brim and roositud inlay motif.

The yarn for the roositud inlay is held double to create a dense motif.
