A knitted in the round beanie style hat which uses stranded colourwork. The ribbed cuff is worked on smaller needles using 4ply, folded over to make a double layer,then the main body of the hat is worked using 4ply held double. There is a stranded colourwork chart.
Only one size given, which makes a roomy hat for a man. If you wanted it smaller, you could use a size smaller needles or miss out one 12 stitch pattern repeat and adjust accordingly.
I used 100g skeins of recycled cashmere, approximately 4ply weight, but any yarn will do.
Quantities required: Brown and Green- 100g
Mustard and Cream- 50g
