This is the perfect pattern for showcasing hand-dyed yarns and funky buttons! The pattern starts with a deep sideways knit band and continues into the crown by working in the round. Using only a single skein and one rather large button, this Hat would make a perfect gift. Modern and stylish, it’s a quick and relaxing knit too.
