This hat is full of clever details! The snappy, two-color cast on brings the contrast color all the way to the border so it reads as part of the hat throughout, the earflaps are knit in as you go with fancy shaping, and the back of the hat is lowered with short rows to protect the back of your neck. The intricate mosaic design is fun to work and much simpler than it appears!
Equally great on guys and gals, this hat is the one you’ll be reaching for all winter long. As written, it should fit a 21”-24” head.
From two skeins of Kathmanu Aran 100 you should be able to get three hats - two with MC and CC the same, one with the colors switched.
Gauge is 17 stitches and 26 rows to 4 inches over stockinette, recommended needle size US 8/5mm.
