 I've just learned how to change colors in the round, so I dont think intarsia will be much harder, as I am a fast learner. (self-taught knitter here!)


Any tips for me?

Can't do intarsia in the round.  You either have to make a seamed hat, work in the fake round, or duplicate stitch it.

Oh, also the chart linked in the previous comment is drawn on square celled graph paper, which means it will look squashed when worked up.

depends on what kind of hat you want.  Basic beanie?  Toque with a turned up cuff? etc.   Depending on how large the intarsia section is and where it is, you could theoretically do just that part flat and then do the rest in the round.

Find a pattern you like.  When you get to the row where you will be putting the intarsia (assuming you're working intarsia), start working flat.  It's usually best to also add a stitch to either side of the outside edge the split for seaming reasons.  Work your intarsia opposite of the opening.  At the last row of the intarsia pattern or the first knit row after the intarsia pattern, join and continue in the round.  Then mattress stitch the seam closed.  This is easiest if you place the intarsia pattern before the decrease rounds (assuming you're working brim to crown).  If there are decreases in the colorwork area, you'll have to figure out how it messes with your chart.

There's also a method of working flat but joining the first and last stitch of the row so it forms a tube, but it's rather annoying to do.  Still, it leaves a very flat seam which can be well nigh invisible depending on the yarn.

Personally, though, if the design isn't very big, I'd just duplicate stitch it carefully with a slightly loftier or heavier yarn.

wow thanks a lot!!!  Grin Cheesy Wink Smiley
duplicate stitch.. is that when u knit the hat, and then go back and weave yarn through and over the stitches so it looks like it was knitted? i dunno how else to ask the question.. but im assuming thats what that means.
