Corbin is a striped hat that utilizes 3 complementary colors and looks great on both ladies and gents. This fun and stylish hat is a great canvas for playing with color and using up yarn scraps. Worked from the top down with a fully lined interior for a finished look, it provides double the warmth and is easily customized for larger or smaller heads. Matching fingerless mitts add a nice touch and complete the look for those that prefer to wear their knits in sets.
This pattern uses both top down and bottom up hemming techniques, with written directions and accompanying color step by step photos to show the processes. Written directions for easy jogless striping and provisionally casting on are also provided, making this pattern great not only to knit, but also to learn new knitting techniques.
27 sts and 40 rnds = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch

I'm a twenty-something Pacific North westerner living in Olympia, Washington. I first learned to knit in the Fall of 2005 and after much self-teaching and practice, began designing my own patterns in early 2010. I know I'm not alone when I say I can't imagine life without my knitting! :)
