Item details

Perk up your winter attire with this lively hat pattern. The entire pattern is knit in-the-round but the cinched top-knot does not require switching to dpns to finish the crown. You are welcome to sell the finished product that you make using my pattern.

The pattern includes a chart for the stranded (fair isle) portion, while the rest of the pattern is given as written instructions. Skills needed are knitting in-the-round, 2-color stranded knitting read from a chart, K, P, SSK, YO, and K2tog. I used sizes US5 and US6 needles. My gauge on US6 needles was about 5 stitches per inch. This hat should fit most adult women.

The hat shown was knit using one skein each of Black DK-weight Classic Alpaca Yarn and Hand Painted DK-weight Alpaca Yarn in Desert Sunset. Both of these yarns are available for purchase in my shop.

This pattern is my original design and is protected by US Copyright law. The pattern instructions and/or photos may not be copied, reproduced, sold, or distributed in any form without my express written permission.

I designed this pattern with a sunburst in mind, but it took on an icelandic alpine air as it evolved. Thanks to mamahobbit for the great Kaleidosnow name suggestion.

Thank you for visiting The Alpaca Yarn Shop!
