Araucaria hat is designed to fit with a negative ease on an average adult head: size S is for ladies, and size L is for men. The hat is knit bottom up in the round on circular or/and double pointed needles in two variations of brioche rib stitch patterns. The sample is worked in a single colour, but this hat can be knit in two colours; the 2-colour instruction is provided for your convenience.
