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.
