Ballard

8.00

Designed by Kate Gagnon Osborn, Ballard is worked in the round from the bottom up. Once the brim is complete, increased are worked and the body of the hat is worked in stranded colorwork from a chart. You will work the 8 stitch repeat 14 times around.

Integrated decreases shape the crown. Change to double pointed needles when the circumference of the hat is to small to fit on the circular needle.

An alternate chart is provided if the colors you choose to use do not match those as given in the pattern (see Useful Tips).
