The Onward & Upward hats can each be knit with ANY fingering weight yarn, held double. Both hats use garter stitch short rows to create a head-hugging, brimless hat. In Onward, the hat is knit flat and side-to-side, then joined with a brilliant slash of color. But, if a lace panel marching up to the summit is more your style, then Upward is perfect. Whether you choose a subtle marled look or a sassy color combo, Onward & Upward hats offer a great way to mix those bases and colors, creating a real one-of-a-kind hat.
