Please note this is a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY with an intermediate skill level. You will not receive a finished hat. You will receive a downloadable PDF file (in English) that provides some written instructions, a chart for the main body of the hat and a link to a video technique tutorial so you can knit one yourself for an average adult head.
This pattern was inspired by nature and the famous expression that sometimes we “can’t see the forest for the trees.” Instead of variegated yarn, this design uses at least two colors held double to create the background. The marled effect doesn’t show its full glory until you finish the hat, step back, allow yourself to breathe…and see the forest.
Worsted/size 4 yarn in at least two colors (held double)
Bulky/size 5 yarn in a color that contrasts from the worsted yarn
US 9 (5.5 mm) 16” (40 cm) circular knitting needles, or size needed to meet gauge
US 10.5 (6.5 mm) 16” (40 cm) circular knitting needle, or size needed to meet gauge
US 10.5 (6.5 mm) double-pointed needles (dpns) or US 10.5 (6.5 mm) circular knitting needles with a longer cord for Magic Loop method, or size needed to meet gauge
