Struan's brother's hat
Struan and his brother Andrew are fraternal twins, similar but not identical, so they needed hats on the same theme. The patterning on the two hats is the same, but one is created using a textured stitch pattern and the other using stranded colourwork. The companion pattern to this one is Andrew's Brother's Hat.
In five sizes from Baby (14" hat circumference) up to Large Adult (22" hat circumference), Struan's Brother's Hat has a stranded colourwork pattern worked in stocking stitch in the round. A maximum of two colours are used per round. Pattern tension is 22 sts + 28 rows over 4 inches (10cm) using DK yarn and 4mm (US 6) needles measured over stranded colourwork. All sizes refer to the circumference of the unstretched hat. Allow around 2" (5cm) negative ease for each size.
If using three colours as pictured, you will need up to 80 yards of Colour 1, and up to 45 yards each of Colour 2 and Colour 3.
