A slightly slouchy beanie that combines patterns inspired by Nordic round yoked sweaters and the crowns of fair isle tams.
The bold design around the bottom is worked using three colours at once — I promise it is completely worth the hassle, and a small project like a hat is a great way to practice a challenging technique. The use of negative space highlights the trees, and features a fun way of managing long floats invisibly. This technique, called ladderback jacquard is more commonly found in machine knitting, and essentially creates a free-floating chain of stitches in the pattern colour behind the background colour.
