This pattern combines two techniques: stranded and modular. The resulting hat is seamless (everything is knit-on) because all elements are worked in-the round. I wouldn't call it difficult, but you need to be familiar with stranded knitting .
The hat is available in two sizes, 5- or 6-hex around the bottom. The finished size heavily depends on gauge. I strongly suggest making one hexagon to know exactly which size you need to knit.
With 2.5mm needles and fingering-weight yarn, a hexagon measures approx. 9 cm wide (it stretches and flattens a little when joined with others). So, the finished hat is 45 (54) cm laying flat. The height is 22-24 cm.
As some knitters commented, most will need 3mm needles to get the gauge, not 2.5mm as in the pattern.
- 50g (200m) of fingering-weight yarn:
40g (160m) main color (shown white),
and 15g (60m) of contrasting colors total;
- 2.5mm circular needles with metal tips;
- tapestry needle to weave in ends;
- optional: washable fabric glue to secure the knots.
