  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This DK weight hat is perfect for using leftover bits of DK weight yarn. The sample is knit with nine colors, but you can use as many or as few colors as you like. Begin with a twisted rib brim and continue with the fun striped and slip stitch motifs, adding extra texture to the fabric. Dive into your stash or create a matching hat for your Fantastitch Sweater.
