This is a super simple unisex hat with an X and O design which is knitted in a chunky yarn and which you can make very quickly. The hat is only available in one size to fit adults.

You will need 2 colours of Rowan Cocoon, 1 ball per colour in order to make this hat.

We have done a number of tutorials on Norwegian stranded colour work on our YouTube channel, which will be of great help for working on this pattern and which you should check out if you have any questions:
