Notes
1. Hat is worked in continuous rounds with right side facing at all times. Place marker for beginning of round and move marker up as each round is completed.
2. Hat is made with 2 strands of yarn held together; band is made with one strand.
3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Carry color not in use under the working strand and up wrong side until next needed.
