It is called Polarized Hat but surely there can be no difference of opinion on how cute it is. Perhaps it is Polarized as in "polar expedition" because it is very warm. It was designed for heavy weight worsted yarn so we are making our kits up in Lamb's Pride Worsted, a single-ply yarn that blends 85% wool with 15% mohair. The hat is worked in the round like a layer cake, with a band of corrugated ribbing topped by Latvian braid, a band of Fair Isle colorwork, another Latvian braid, and a solid color crown. The optional tassel is the final touch. The hat fits most adults with a finished circumference of about 22". It can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Tanis Gray.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- double point needles in US size 8 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- 16" circular needle in US size 8
- stitch markers
- tapestry needle
