Who isn’t fond of two-color hats? Endless combinations of color to express your preference and style, and the warm noggin is worth spending a little time on making your own hat.
The size range included allows you to make a classic beanie or a slouchy hat that can also be worn with the rim doubled as shown in some of the pictures.
Knit in a smooth worsted weight yarn with a slick , this hat can span the seasons and bridge the gap from function to form and double as a fashion statement in the spring or fall!
To avoid long floats, Seyon Pond makes clever use of slip and dip stitches wherever possible. Only one row requires you to catch your floats on the wrong side.
A rewarding first fair isle project that is sure to impress
and turn a few heads!
