This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. Color changes are achieved through the stranded method of knitting. You may wish to place a stitch marker between each pattern repeat. Use a contrast color marker to distinguish the beginning of the round from pattern repeat markers.
This pattern uses the 1x1 long-tail tubular cast-on method for a neat edge. There are many tutorials available online for this technique. If in doubt, use another stretchy cast-on technique.
