Featuring sideways knit ascending and descending stripes, Equalised makes effective use of short rows to not only create the striped pattern but the shaping, too.

Worked sideways in DK weight yarn the Hat can easily be adjusted for a range of sizes by changing needle size, gauge or yarn.

2 sizes are included in the pattern for the suggested yarn. Illustrated tutorials are also included to help guide you through the techniques needed to create this Hat.
