New Pattern: In Transit


In Transit is a basic hat with a clever, transitional colorwork pattern. The zigzag colorwork is based on a simple, two-color salt and pepper fair isle pattern. Working the pattern over an odd number of stitches hides the jog that naturally occurs when knitting stranded colorwork in the round; a seemingly simple detail that provides polished results!

In Transit can be worked in two highly contrasting colors that stand out, or in two similar colors for a more subtle look.
