Whoosh! This hat happily reminds me of powder skiing out West. The First Tracks Hat is circularly knit in two-colored stranded knitting to produce an adult-sized hat with a finished circumference slightly over 21 1/2", when knit to the given gauge. The pattern is appropriate for intermediate knitters and beyond who are familar with stranded/Fair Isle / Norwegian colorwork knitting. Instructions for the "braid" trim (which is actually knit as part of the hat) and the colorized chart are included with the pattern. GAUGE 24 stitches and 28 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch with colorwork on larger needle. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished circumference when knit to gauge = 21 1/2" SUGGESTED YARN 200 yards of Sport weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Dale of Norway Falk COLORWAY Any two contrasting colors your heart desires!
