Product details

Use one solid yarn and one slowly self-changing yarn, and knit this Andean-inspired hat. Earflaps are optional but oh-so-warm.

Two-colored rows are easy, though!!! It does not matter if you use only one hand (whichever you prefer) or one yarn in each hand.

  • If you knit with your right hand, just pick up the yarn you need for each stitch, and drop the other.

  • If you know how to knit with either
    hand, consider trying one yarn in each
    hand and see if you like that.

  • If you use only your left hand to
    tension yarn, make sure the yarns pass
    through different paths between your
    fingers. I put one yarn over my index
    finger only, and another over the
    first two fingers.


Released pattern December 28, 2009.

On December 30, I gently revised the text of the pattern. The only changes are on page 1 and page 3, where I suggest that perhaps some knitters would benefit from using a larger needle (about 2 sizes larger)
