Ski hat is knit using an old Scandinavian technique called "two-end" knitting. This simple technique will keep the hat warm, wind resistant and surprisingly soft. It also takes less yarn than Fair Isle. Hat begins with the earflaps and is joined in the round and worked up to the crowning for a no-seam finishing.
