I wanted to create a hat with a flattish "sunburst" top and bands of pattern. I used the classic design of the Sirupsnitter (diamond shaped cookies from Norway), set out for the festivities of Winter, along with a small XO for good measure, and topped with a sunburst, to keep your head warm! This hat is knit in the round with cables and textured sts. This hat looks best knit in a solid or tonal Worsted weight yarn. The height of the hat is easily changed by adding or subtracting the solid knit rows between the solid purl rows that separate the patterns. You may also like to add a large pom pom which would look cool, too! Large size is seen on each model. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Experience with cable work and knitting in the round is helpful GAUGE 8.5 stitches and 12 rows = 2 inches in ribbing with 3.75mm needles SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS one size fits 21", 22", and 23" circumference head, option to make smaller sizes is included SUGGESTED YARN 200 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Malabrigo, Rios COLORWAY glazed carrot
