I’m hooked on knitting with Noro Rainbow Roll. Cast on for this hat, and started knitting round and round …and before I knew it I had used the entire roll for this hat! This exaggerated stocking cap with a rolled brim and twisted I-cord tail will use up nearly all of one roll, resulting in an incredibly light, warm and distinctive hat. Feel free to swirl the long peak artfully around your neck, or leave loose and flowing to provide drama with every toss of your head!

Rainbow Roll is unspun roving, and will break if tugged aggressively. For best results, unwind a few yards from the roll, knit, unwind a few yards, knit – you get the idea. If the strand does break, overlap the ends and rub between your hands for a quick felted join. The knit fabric is very strong.
