The Ice Time Hat is a 2-color hat worked with mosaic knitting (so you’re never using more than 1 color in any given row). After the brim, you change colors every 2 rounds which I promise will have you saying “just one more round!” after each one. The pattern effect is achieved using slipped stitches and simple 1x1 cables. Perfect for even an adventurous beginner. If you like the hat, be sure to check out the matching Ice Time Cowl.

About the Name
The Ice Time Hat is inspired by my brother, Jeff—a hockey player in hisyouth and now coach to his son’s team. Jeff is only 20 months younger than me. When we were young, we were often mistaken for twins because of the resemblance but also because he was always there looking out for and protecting me. We were inseparable siblings (when we weren’t fighting like cats and dogs). The blending of the colors in this hat reminds me of that strong bond we share even as adults.
