The bold, geometric pattern on this hat is worked using only one color on any given round and instructions are included for both a slouchy hat and a beanie shape.
This pattern is a great introduction to color work without the hassle of carrying two strands of yarn at once.
The hat is truly unisex and can be made with or without the pom pom.
What a great way to use up stash and leftover yarn from other projects!
