I named Fresh Chroma for the bright, modern colors found in the new Malabrigo Rastita yarn. Cheerful colors and extremely soft yarn, its a fun hat to knit and wear. And, because the chart is simple, it’s a great project for knitters who want to practice their stranded color work but won’t bore the more experienced either.
