Traveling stitches depict an hourglass shape across a purl background on this fun hat. The purl fabric truly allows variegated and color shifting yarns to shine through.

Knit stitches are alternately cabled and slipped to create the elongated knit stitch. Knitters should be comfortable cabling or ready to learn to cable without a cable needle.

Sample hat was knit in Malabrigo Rios, whose soft hand makes knitting a delight. Cast on in worsted wool for a soft, warm hat that’s ready to fight off the winter chill.
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios superwash wool, 210 yards per 3.5 ounces; Color: Purpuras; 1 skein

Needles: US size 8 (5mm) 16” circular; and a set of US size 8 (5mm) DPNs

Notions: You’ll need one stitch marker to demarcate the beginning of the row. If you’d like to mark between the motifs, you’ll want 9 more.

Gauge: One chart repeat (8 stitches over 20 rows) is approximately 1.5 inches by 2 inches

Finished Measurements: 9.5” to brim, fits 20-22” head. Meant to be a bit slouchy at the top.
