old school gaming hat

old school gaming hat

Old School Gaming Hat is a simple hat with a folded brim and fun stranded colorwork depicting old school gaming characters. With only two colors for the color work, this hat knits up super quick and is a great first stranded project for anyone who has never attempted this technique before.

This pattern contains instructions for three adult sizes when worked in an aran weight yarn. Use a DK or light worsted weight yarn instead for sizes suitable for children from 3 months old and upwards.

The Old School Gaming Hat is completely seamless and knitted from the bottom up. The colorwork pattern for the body of the hat is provided charted only. All other instructions are in written form
