FiftyFifty hat is a slightly thinner, plaid, two-coloured classic hat knitted with intarsia in the round (step by step pictures and links to video tutorials is included in the pattern). The hat comes in three sizes and is knitted from the bottom up. The horisontal lines are knitted but the vertical lines are crocheted afterwards (step by step pictures and link to a video tutorial is included in the pattern). A quick project with possibilities to learn some new fun techniques!
