Trail’s End Hat



I started designing this hat when I was looking for something to do with my extra bits of Dyed in the Wool leftover from larger projects. It’s a great project for showcasing a length of handspun that you’re excited about. The hat is knitted from the brim up. And there are three sizes included in the pattern.

The pattern utilizes the mosaic knitting technique of slipping stitches throughout. This is a quick, fun way to incorporate two colors into your project while just using one strand at a time.
