Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round
  • Stranded knitting
  • crossed stitches

Pattern Description:

Made up in Reverie Worsted (blue) and Wool of the Andes Worsted (white). This spiral design in 2 colors unites the smooth, sturdy texture of WOTA with the lofty softness of Reverie for a super-light, super-warm, and super-stylish Winter hat. The 1x1 ribbing in WOTA transitions into a slip stitch spiral pattern on garter-stitch Reverie, ending with a dramatic white star-shape on the crown.
This design assumes the knitter has prior experience with knitting in the round, working with stranded (fair isle) knitting, and using crossed (cabled) stitches.
