I designed this hat to show off the beautiful variations in hand- dyed, variegated yarn with short colour repeats.
This is a great pattern for that one skein of fingering-weight, artisan yarn in your stash that you want to show off but aren’t sure how – this simple pattern lets the yarn shine without any texture or stitch patterns to compete with its beauty. The contrast of vertical stripes against the horizontal stripes is interesting and a little unexpected.
Instructions are included for a child-sized hat and a teen/adult-sized hat in both beanie and slouchy style.
The brim of the child size hat measures 14 inches/ 38 centimetres un-stretched. The brim of the teen/adult sized hat measures 18 inches/ 45 centimetres, measured flat before grafting
