An intermediate-level pattern with fun colorwork in an eye-catching combination of spirals, zigzags, and diamonds, the Verhånnrosa Hat is a Norwegian-style stranded hat — with options either for a tam or a beanie in an adult size — inspired by a traditional motif from Selbu: the verhånnrosa or ramrose. It is knit in one solid main color (MC) and one multicolor contrast color (CC) yarn.
Materials: Fingering weight yarn in two colorways, one solid (MC) and one color-changing (CC). Samples used Knit Picks Palette in Cream and Knit Picks Preciosa Fingering Bare as the MC; and Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi in Color 105 Tapestry Rainbow and Color 124 Greens as the CC. Knit Picks Chroma Fingering would also make a nice CC.
Gauge: 34 sts and 36 rows = 4” (10cm) in stranded stockinette stitch in-the-round using a U.S. Sz. 2 (2.75mm) circular needle (developed using a 40” (100cm) circular and the “magic loop” method).
Finished Dimensions: * For the tam, 16” (40.6cm) brim circumference (unstretched), 10“ (25.4cm) diameter at widest point, 9” (22.9cm) tall from CO to top of hat (flattened). * For the beanie, 16” (40.6cm) brim circumference (unstretched), 8.75” (22.2cm) diameter at widest point, 8.75” (22.2cm) tall (flattened).
