Hoofprints in the Meadow hat pattern
The bag/yarn/pattern kits are gone, but Wild Wood Stitches has many more to choose from!
This pattern includes instructions to work a knitted beanie using the stranded colourwork technique and worked from the bottom rib up with corrugated rib and decreases shaping the crown. It also shows the chart in colour and with symbols.
Since there are longer floats, you may want to use the Ladder-back/Invisible Jacquard technique (included in pattern).
