Soft and warm and quite stylish is the Woven Braid Ski Hat by Cheryl Beckerich. This knitted hat pattern was designed with intermediate level knitters in mind. It’s started with a provisional cast on and then is worked as a flat band.
You can use any DK or light worsted yarn for this project. Or, you can use the lovely yarn Cheryl used in her sample – Potion Yarns Temptress DK. You’ll need 220 yards of yarn. You’ll need a 16″/40cm circular needle, double pointed needles and a spare needle all in a size 7 or 4.5mm (or as needed to obtain gauge). You’ll also need some waste yarn for the provisional cast on, a cable needle, stitch markers and a tapestry needle.
