The Design

“A little colorwork, a little striping, a lot of fun.”

This free pattern plays with color in two engaging ways! First, a graphic, textured corrugated rib in two colors marches around the brim. Then, an ascending series of stripes taper off towards the crown. Pick high contrast colors for some graphic oomph or a pair of tonal hues for subtle cool.

Knit in Rowan Valley Tweed, this beanie has just the right amount of woolliness. Light, strong, and hardy, this fiber is spun from 100% wool (a thread of which is lambswool for softness). The color palette of earthy greys and richly flecked jewel tones will inspire any number of handsome colorways for this stripey hat!

The Details
