Tenley Hat Kit by James Cox
The Tenley hat pattern by James Cox is worked bottom up using the helical knitting technique. This fun method of knitting allows us to work one-round stripes 2 (or more!) colors without floats or jogs between rounds.
Pairing a solid Sueño with the energetic patterning of Ambiente creates a stylishly colorful hat that looks complicated. Our favorite part? There’s only the beginning and end tails to weave in! The final edge is sewn to close the crown which creates a beautiful design feature on the top of the hat.
This project is worked in the round using the following techniques:
- Helical knitting
- Basic finishing
