Done with a
strand of Lorna's Laces Socknitter's Rainbow yarn - fingering weight
and a strand of Italian turquoise wool. Makes an interesting stripe
pattern if you view it from a distance.
Done from the
top down, starting with a crocheted cast-on...work a square. Pick
up around all four sides. Increase at eight points. Use the square
part to measure your gauge. Measure the person's head. Keep increasing
until you get the head measurement. Then work straight.
