  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Gather your leftover bits of DK and worsted weight yarns for this stashbusting hat. Slip stitches form the columns with contrasting garter ridge stripes. Customize the colors and play with different shades for each section or try using one main color throughout the entire hat while the contrasting color stripes change. This hat is very quick and easy to make, making it a great knitting gift.
