This striped cap was inspired by the colorful canopy of a vintage carousel. It’s worked back and forth in rows with a separate yarn source for each color block, intarsia fashion, with the yarns twisted at the color changes to prevent holes. The hat is seamed and a fl uff y pom-pom tops off the cheerful look.
