With fun colorwork in an eye-catching combination of spirals, zigzags, and diamonds, the Verhånnrosa Hat is a Norwegian-style stranded hat — with options either for a tam or a beanie in an adult size — inspired by a traditional motif from Selbu: the verhånnrosa or ramrose. It is knit in one solid main color (MC) and one multicolor contrast color (CC) yarn.
Yardage: For the tam, 110-165 yds. (100-150m) MC and 95-120 yds. (87-110m) CC for the tam. For the beanie, 100-120 yds. (91-110m) MC and 80-110 yds. (73-100m) CC.
Gauge: 34 sts and 36 rows = 4” (10cm) in stranded stockinette stitch in-the-round using a U.S. Sz. 2 (2.75mm) circular needle (developed using a 40” (100cm) circular and the “magic loop” method).
