Choose two colors of DK or worsted weight yarn to knit this hat from the bottom brim to the top crown. One solid color of West Wool Tandem frames the beautiful marled and self-striping colors of Spincycle Yarns Dream State. The hat is knit with one color at time as you slip stitches, so it’s very easy and fun to knit. Wear the brim folded for extra warmth and enjoy your colorful new hat!
