This is a very simple hat. It is knit flat and then seamed up. It looks very interesting and is fun and fast to make. Even a very timid knitter can do it. Perfect for the beginner, but fun even if you are more experienced. Wonderful for the last minute gift.
You can sell up to 5 hats a year made from this pattern.
12 - 18 months
1 skein of Noro Kureion
1 16" circular needle #6 (I prefer to use a circular needle even if I am not knitting in the round. I really never use straight needles. If you happen to love the straight needles - go ahead and use them).
Tapestry needle to close up the seams and weave in the ends.
