This winter wear this attractively textured warm hat on and off the ski slopes!
Knit in the round with yarn doubled, On The Slopes works up so fast you’ll find that one hat just isn’t enough. Its wide cable panels and blackberry bobble stitch keep the knitter’s interest and are easy to memorize. The pattern instructions are given to match the pictured versions. Three colors were used in each. Instead of straight forward stripes colors are introduced one strand at a time providing a slower transition that adds visual interest to the final garment. Feel free to work the hat in only one color (or two) if you prefer, the pattern will be wonderful with any and all color variations. Top your fabulous creation off with a pom-pom made in one or all of the colors in the hat. And now you are ready to hit the slopes (or the streets) in style!
