Love texture? Blue is the hat for you! Lots of broken seed stitch and a lovely antler cable. Why blue? I designed the hat for my boss, who happens to be colorblind. Orange is his favorite color, but he sees it as blue.
Worked in the round, Blue contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern features 3 sizes; Small, Medium, & Large. Blue includes a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit.
Blue is written to be worked on circular needles. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method. However, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles throughout instead.
Curt is seen here wearing the medium size and has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head.
