Square to the power of two! Yes, squaring the square should actually be quite simple, but making a
hat out of a square requires a clever pattern. Square² – that’s “Square squared” – does that for you!
It starts very relaxed by with knitting in the round, can be adjusted to the wearer’s head size during
the knitting and will be extra warm at the ears as the fabric will be doubled there. All of that happens
seamlessly and (almost) without purl stitches. The hat comes off the needles completely finished as
soon as the knitting is done and ends are woven in. How many depends on your choice of yarn: Pick a
pretty bundle of mini skeins (Fino Minis
from Manos del Uruguay) or a ball of self-striping yarn. If you wish, you can opt to add a reflecting
yarn for safety in the light stripes.
