We all need a bit of rare and remarkable in our lives and these hats honour the Rare & Remarkable Tuatara and Little Blue
Penguins/ kororā.

This is a pattern for a slouchy beanie worked from the bottom up, in the round, and using the stranded colourwork technique.

This pattern includes 2 motifs to choose from (Tuatara and Little Penguins). There are a few rounds with long floats and I have included an explanation of the Ladder-Back/Invisible Jacquard method. But you may tack your floats any way you like. The charts are also split into 3 for your convenience.
