Needles: 2.25 mm / US 1 AND 2.75 mm / US 2 knitting needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: Stitch marker, 3cm / 1¼” pompom maker or cardboard

Notes: This slightly slouchy hat is knitted seamlessly in the round from the brim to the crown in a colourwork pattern using 6 different shades of 4ply weight yarn. Catch the floats when they span more than 5 stitches and do not catch them in the same place as the round below, or the caught yarn will be more visible from the right side.
Be aware of colour dominance and be consistent about holding the yarn to avoid this being an issue.
