Leanne the hat is worked using 7 separate balls of yarn, using the Intarsia method. It is worked from end to end and grafted at the back of the head. This is a good beginner project for those new to Intarsia as the bulky yarn makes for a quick knit.
This hat can be worked using either straight or circular needles. As it is worked from end to end and grafted, the start of the hat works well as a swatch.
