Description

I’m looking for test knitters for the “sweet disaster” hat, 2/3 for each size. The pattern is available in size X-Small/Small (50-56cm) and Medium/Large (56-61cm).
If you’re interested in test knitting this design, please reply in this thread or PM me with your Gmail address and tell me which size you’d like to knit.
The « sweet disaster » hat is a friendly pattern that can be completed quickly in one sitting using yarn leftovers. The color combinations options are endless and it is a great stash buster!
This pattern has been written to be  worked in the round from the bottom up. It begins with a fantasy stitch followed by stockinette stitches using a combination and an alternance of the main and complementary yarns.
For this pattern, you will need to be familiar with knitting in the round knitting multiple strings of yarns and changing colors.
