These hats are simple to make for the beginner, and can be done on a knitting loom or on circular needles. Three hanks of the suggested yarn should give you exactly enough to make three coordinating hats in three different stripey combinations. Bright and cheery colors are the perfect antidote to gloomy Winter grays! Plus, one hat can be finished in a single evening.
