This pattern is worked in the round with two-color stranded knitting. The pattern assumes use of magic loop with circular knitting needles, but it could also easily be made with double-pointed needles. It is recommended that you are familiar with these techniques before attempting this pattern.

Here is some info on jogless stripes, which can help clean up the beginning/end of striped rounds (removes the “jog” between rows that is obvious when colors change). This technique is completely optional and is not directly referenced in the pattern.http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2007/01/jogless-stripes.html

Don’t forget to show off your completed hats on the Finished Objects thread!
