The Strong hat is another pattern in the Affirmation collection (which also includes Achievement). In this case, it is not a lace stitch pattern which is inspired by a positive word but a colourwork pattern. As the name suggests, the pattern is inspired by the word Strong. The pattern is written for one size, to fit an average size woman’s head with circumference of approximately 22”. The hat band itself measures 18¼” (46.5cm) around when knitted to pattern tension of 7st and 12 rows per inch (2.5cm) over two-colour rib as given for band.

You will need:
200 yds (183m) fingering weight yarn in Main Colour
120 yds (110m) fingering weight yarn in Contrast Colour
2.75mm (US 2) knitting needles for knitting in the round, or size needed to achieve pattern tension
Stitch markers
Darning needle
Dinner plate and beaker for blocking

You need to be able to: work in the round (including in small rounds), work stranded colourwork from charts (the colourwork pattern is charted only), work common increases and decreases
