Ready to try stranded knitting? Winterset Hat is a fitted beanie with a section of stranded colorwork set on a background of plain Stockinette stitch. With twenty-three rounds of stranded colorwork, and only two colors worked per round, Winterset won't be overwhelming for someone new to stranded knitting. For a more advanced knitter, this is a great project for making quick gifts. Worsted weight yarn makes Winterset a brief and satisfying knit that is perfect for using up leftover bits of yarn from previous projects.
Pattern includes color charts for both colorways pictured, plus three additional colorways and three blank charts to fill in with your own colors. Also included are a template and illustrated instructions for creating the pom-pom.
20 sts and 28 rounds = 4" in Stockinette stitch worked in the round using larger needles
