Wondering what to do with that crazy variegated skein of DK or worsted-weight yarn? Choose a neutral color as a base and whip up this fun (and warm!) colorwork hat.
If you’ve never done stranded colorwork before, this hat makes a great introduction, with short floats and an easy-to-memorize pattern.

Actual finished circumference: 19.5 (21.25, 23)” or 49.5 [54, 58.5] cm Length from CO edge to top: 8 (8.25, 8.75)” or 20 [21, 22] cm
