This four-colored “Quad Beanie” uses small amounts of bulky weight yarn to create a fun chevron pattern that looks great in any color combination. Since the individual yarn quantities are so small, I have found that this hat is an excellent stash-busting project as well. Also, I think selecting yarn colors is half the fun. Don’t be afraid of trying some bold combinations.
