The colorwork pattern on this hat lends itself to a myriad of colorful possibilities. Knit it in a cheerful rainbow of hues offset with white or black, use a monochromatic set of shades for a more sophisticated look, get scrappy with leftovers from your stash, or select jewel tones paired with black for a stained glass look. Whatever suits your tastes!

The pattern itself is surprisingly simple with its four-stitch repeat, ensuring a quick knit and a good choice for even an advanced beginning knitter. Colorwork patterns are charted.
