This winter hat is knit with five colors of DK weight yarn. Begins with the ribbed brim and then continue with colorful slip stitch stripes. You only have to work with one color at a time as the slip stitches create a beautiful texture woven effect in the fabric. The small color pops are ideal for using leftover bits of yarn. The folded brim keeps your head cozy and warm.
Finished Measurements 19′′ / 48cm circumference, 10′′ / 25cm tall from brim to crown when brim is folded. Measurements taken after blocking.
The hat stretches comfortably to fit up to a 24′′ / 61cm head circumference. The sample is modeled on a 22.5′′ / 57cm head circumference.
