Whoosh! This hat happily reminds me of powder skiing out West.
The First Tracks Hat is circularly knit in two-colored stranded knitting to produce an adult-sized hat with a finished circumference slightly over 21 1/2", when knit to the given gauge. The pattern is appropriate for intermediate knitters and beyond who are familar with stranded/Fair Isle / Norwegian colorwork knitting. Instructions for the "braid" trim (which is actually knit as part of the hat) and the colorized chart are included with the pattern.
24 stitches and 28 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch with colorwork on larger needle.

Hi! My name is Mary Ann Stephens. My mother taught me how to knit when I was 5. I've always loved knitting, but I never became madly obsessed with it until I made a Norwegian baby sweater while expecting my first son. After my third son was born, rather than return to my very family-UNfriendly Wall St. career, I started Kidsknits.com - my online yarn shop which specializes in Norwegian and Fair Isle knitting - and my Two Strands knitting blog, Feel free to email me directly with any questions or comments at mas AT kidsknits DOT com.
Thanks for visiting and happy knitting!
