This hat was inspired by the beautiful sock yarn I received in a Darn Good Yarn Sock of the Month box. It was simply too pretty to put on my feet so I designed this simple hat pattern to make the most of the beautiful yarn. Holding two strands together, one from each cake, the stripes present themselves evenly resulting a hat that matches a lot of different coats, hoodies and sweaters, perfect for travel it can be rolled up and taken along, sure to go with everything in your bag.
Sit back, enjoy and knit up a few using your favorite self stripers or two divergent ones to create a wonderful marled pattern.
