-The hat and sweater are written as an introduction to Intarsia-in-the-Round. Be brave! This Shark wont bite.
Stripes may be worked by carrying unused yarn behind work, catching between sts every other row or so, or yarn can be cut and ends woven in finishing.

On the hat, it is recommended to use a different colored st marker to easily identify the beg of the rnd.
