    If your gauge is off, your hat will not match the patterns finished measurements and you might not be happy with the fit. We recommend that you do a swatch first and then adjust the pattern.

      Hello,

      I am sorry, but there is not a video for this pattern.

  2. This looks like what I need for guidance. Thanks!
    Could one knit the “inside” hat plain and the outside hat with a stranded pattern? And, is there value in putting a purl row at the junction between the two hats so that it is clear to the wearer where the “fold” line is?

    1. Hi there,
      I’m so glad you like the hat! You could absolutely knit the outside hat with a stranded pattern. Consider using a larger size needle for the outside hat and be careful that you give plenty of room for the floats to stretch.
      As far as putting a purl row at the junction, I think it might ruin the seamless look of the brim. My guy wears his hat all the time and it stays perfectly folded even though there’s no purl row. But you could definitely try it if you want to add that extra visual detail right at the brim.
      Happy knitting!
