Carapace has a patterning reminiscent of sea shells.
The hat is seamless for the wearer's comfort.
Instructions are given for a single colour but if preferred the shells could easily be knitted in a contrast yarn, the pattern tells you how.
Sizes: Newborn (3m-3y, 3-3y), (6-14y, Teen-Adult, Large Adult)
Yarn Required: 110 (120, 130), (160, 190, 200) yards of DK weight yarn.
If you are working in two colours then you will need about ⅓ of the amount listed for the contrast colour and ⅔ of the amount listed as a main colour.
