Zoe’s Chunky Two Color Spiral Hat

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of being a pattern tester for Zoe Deterding, my UK buddy on Facebook and YouTube, and I’m thrilled to say the pattern is now available FREE on Ravelry!


Margaret’s Note: While this calls for chunky yarn, I’ve successfully done it in #4 worsted (Red Heart Soft) and #1 sock yarn (Sensations Truly). All you need to do is watch the size of the crown to know when to stop decreasing.  Here are Hat Sizing Charts to help you with sizing.
