This project is totally seamless and uses the techniques of knitting in the round, increases and decreases for shaping, double pointed needles, and optional knitted cords and pom poms.
All 3 styles are seamless & knit up quickly. You follow instructions for one of the styles, from the bottom up to the top. If you like the basic hat, you begin with the ribbing. If you want earflaps or cords, you begin there. The top for all styles is the same, with exaggerated decrease lines to show off it’s toque shape. And one style continues into a tassel, for those who want some extra fun.
