  • Isela, you have done it again! I am a lover of the Chevron stitch in both knit and crochet. I know I will enjoy making this hat. Thanks for sharing. Have a great Christmas!!!

  • I love this one. I take it it is one strand of yarn only. Please confirm, because it looks so snug.

  • Yes. One strand.
