Have you ever wanted to learn how to do stranded colourwork? This hat is the perfect introduction to this colourwork technique. You will learn how to knit with two colours at the same time (maybe even with both hands!), carry floats behind your work, and read a chart.
Supplies you'll need:
4 mm and 5 mm needles in a 16" cable (or 40" cable for magic loop)
5 mm DPNs for crown of the hat (not necessary if doing magic loop)
worsted weight yarn (160 yds of the main colour and 80 yds of the contrast colour)
row tracker (such as pattern holder, KnitCompanion, highlighter tape, or ruler)
