Moon Sprites
from Paper Tiger Follow

Moon Sprites is a bite-sized companion to the Moon Pulls pullover. Worked from the bottom up with a garter stitch brim, the pattern includes instructions for three different versions of this simple yet spirited hat. With only a few rounds of stranded colorwork, it’s ideal for colorwork beginners learning to tackle a new skill (and it also makes a great swatch if you’re planning to knit Moon Pulls).

This pattern calls for the warm and airy Létt-Lopi yarn. The wide palette offers over 40 colors, from subtle neutrals to candy-colored brights. Eight different sample hats are displayed within the pattern to give the knitter an idea of the world of color combinations available with the Lopi palette.

As written, the pattern yields a hat with a generous amount of slouch, but the number of plain stockinette rounds before and after the chart can be altered for either a more fitted or a super slouchy version. Work fewer rounds of plain stockinette for a fitted hat; work more for extra slouch.

The finished circumference for each size is: 18 (20, 22)” / 46 (51, 56) cm
