I developed this design for two reasons.
Reason #1 I am a hat lover! I love making them for gifts and wearing them myself.
Reason #2 I make my living as a knitting teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, where one almost always needs a hat. I wanted to design a pattern that fit the bill for my intermediate students, who are ready to take the leap and learn to knit in the round and start introducing colorwork into their practice.

I love cozy cables, sweet colorwork and textiles in general. I work as an art and design instructor in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a passionate advocate for the DIY movement and have been knitting for the past 11 years (almost every day). Thank you so much for taking a look!
