Our guys are flying over the ice in red, black and white. The thick black disk has no chance--it’s going into the opponent’s goal, and the other guys are going home. The light, the horn, the cheers! You will be forgiven if you keep this hat on your head when our hero scores a hat trick.

Knit in the three distinctive colors of the Chicago Blackhawks (or your own favorite team), this hat is two hats in one. Knit the mostly red “home” side from the bottom up with a provisional cast on, then flip it and knit a second hat from the edge outwards with the white “away” color dominant. One hat fits inside the other for a warm, snug fit, and lets everyone know whose side you’re on--no matter which side the hat is on!
