Abstract flowers are scattered amongst the butterflies that circle this beanie. What better way to brighten your day than with a bit of stranded knitting?

Long floats will cause knitting to pucker and inhibit elasticity. For best colorwork results, wrap floats every 2 or 4 sts.

If you plan on printing the charts, make sure the “No Stitch” boxes and Coordinating Color stitches are distinguishable from one another. If they aren’t then you may wish to place an “X” mark or cross out each box that will not be worked. The gray “No Stitch” boxes were placed in the middle of rounds when necessary (vs. only at the edges) in order to keep the flow of the design visible in charted form.
