This adorable hat features a vintage-inspired geometric fair isle motif with a cheerfully colored striped background. The hat is worked in the round from a chart with easy to understand integrated crown shaping, and comes in two sizes; fitted and slouchy. Only 25-30 yards of DK weight yarn is needed for each background stripe, so this is a great stash-busting project.
