I love this sort of knitting. It is more interesting than just one colour and using several colours creates another layer of warmth which is very much appreciated on a freezing cold day. The Merino wool will be soft and pliable and so the hat will have a good texture. Arne explains this hat in a relaxed way. If you find you are getting a bit confused, don't panic, just go back over the part where you lost touch with your knitting. Things like this take a little bit more patience and you need t work through the process until you are confident. Make sure you wind your wool behind the needles so that the two colours are meshed. It's all practice. You can find the written pattern on their website.
