The hat starts with an inner lining knit in stockinette stitch on smaller needles. Next comes the stranded colorwork. This colorwork pattern is a breeze to knit though, since only two colors are used at once. You may find yourself saying, "just one more row!" ... it's so fun to see the pattern emerge after each round. When the top of the hat is done, fold the inner lining to the inside and sew it to the outer layer of the hat just below the start of the crown shaping. The Moroccan Star Hat is perfect for staying cozy while looking stylish this winter!

The design team at Rowan has once again teamed up with globally celebrated designer Kaffe Fassett to craft the perfect Knit-Along. This season, Kaffe has created an amazing colorwork afghan! The last Kaffe Fassett Knit Along was amazingly popular and this KAL will be no different.

Kaffe Fassett Afghan KAL
by Kaffe Fassett
Inspired by bold geometric tile designs, Kaffe's afghan design achieves his iconic look without any complicated colorwork. If you are an intermediate knitter, you will enjoy this project while building colorwork skills!
The afghan has a total of 48 squares knit from 13 unique patterns, plus a border and will be made using intarsia colorwork techniques. The layout of the squares flows around Kaffe's instantly recognizable tumbling block design. Each square is then placed to achieve the maximum geometric impact.
Did we talk about Kaffe's colorways? ... they are simply amazing! For this KAL, he has crafted only one simple yet effective colorway that captures his distinctive Kaffe signature. But choices are good! We have over 50 colors of Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted ... so if you would like to substitute colors, we have all the project details in the "Materials" section below ...
