Swans Island Nordica Cap PDF
The Nordica Hat from Swans Island is a clean and simple hat that features a band of graphic snowflakes with a nod to classic Nordic inspired designs. A basic garter stitch band creates the edging. If you are just beginning or want to try some easy two color knitting, this project would be a good place to start. Knit in the round, you carry the floats across the back of the work through the charted section and then go back into easy stockinette for the crown shaping, ending with a small “stem” at the top. Note: Colorwork pattern is charted only.
