Plaid, or tartan, patterns always make me think of my most comfortable flannel pajamas and curling up cozy in front of a fire. While some knitted plaids can look overworked and oddly proportioned, this hat features a simplified tartan pattern utilizing two contrast colors in narrow horizontal and vertical stripes.

The main color of the hat requires about 200 yards of sport weight yarn. The contrasting colors use significantly less.
