The first round of stitches should be made out of the main color of the hat. Seven rows of this should be made. The next color should be cast-on, and it should be knitted on for five rows with a row of purling in between. The rest of the colors can be added in strip es to reach the desired pattern. The top half of the hat should always be the main color to match the bottom band. The rounds should always match up and should look somewhat seamless on the horizontal. Number 7 needles should be used throughout the entire project. Number 7 needles allow the knitter to create a 20-inch hat that will fit an average man's head.
