Knitting
September 2018

in Stranded St
US 6 - 4.0 mm
US 7 - 4.5 mm
400 yards (366 m)
6 Months (12 Months, Child/Women’s Small, Women’s Medium/Men’s Small)

Crisp, modern colorwork diamonds on an Aran-weight hat that knits up quickly in sizes for the whole family.

Notes
Swatch both St st and Stranded St st since gauge may differ; adjust needle as needed.

To adjust hat depth, work more or fewer ribbing and/or St st rnds before and after the Colorwork Chart.

If using a different needle size or an alternate yarn, the ribbed brim should be worked on a needle one size smaller than the size used for the St st sections to ensure a snug fit around the brim.
