Whirling travelling-stitch columns and a perfect pom-pom conjure up the fun of the fair in this split-brim Hat that’s both snuggly and stylish. Worn low to cover the ears and hug the face, Skelter will be your favourite winter warmer.

The pattern includes five sizes, both charted and written instructions, and tutorials for the crochet provisional cast-on, knitting in the round and cabling without a needle.

Skelter ist so konstruiert, dass sie tiefer getragen werden kann, so dass der geschlitzte Rand direkt im Nacken zu sitzen kommt, das Bündchen die Ohren bedeckt und die Mütze vorn ins Gesicht gezogen wird. Eine wärmere, schickere Variante der bekannten Chullo-Mütze!

Von unten nach oben in Runden gestrickt, die Anleitung enthält 5 verschiedene Größen.
