I just LOVE this hat by amazingly clever designer Elizabeth Felgate. It can be worn any number of ways and comes in 3 sizes so fits all heads from babies to men. It looks so complicated but is just a series of single twisted stitches so there is no need even for a cable needle. Designed specifically for Altopiano yarn this hat makes a quick and simple knit.
Pattern actually uses 4mm & 5mm but I found hat was too tight as I hate having anything too tight around my head, and 4.5mm and 5.5mm circular needle or DPNs worked better. As always check your gauge!
