Bennington Hat


Adult, one size

Worsted weight in 2 colors, about 100 yards per color; sample is knit with Morehouse Merino 3-Strand

Double-pointed #6 (or size to obtain correct gauge)

Gauge: 5 stitches = 1 inch over pattern

Hat is knit in the round. With color A (the darker of the two colors), cast on 88 stitches. Join and knit first round. Switch to color B and start pattern. (Donít break off yarn when switching colors, just pull up new color loosely on inside of hat and cross over behind yarn color youíve just finished with to avoid gap.)

Round 3 (color A) knit 1, *slip stitch, knit 3; rep from * to end of round, ending with slip stitch, knit 2
