Warm, slouchy, easy knitting with a bit of simple color work for interest, the Keep It Simple - KIS - Hat is a match to the KIS Mitts. Use up those leftover bits and bobs for stripes or make every stripe the same color. The garter stitch brim is worked flat and left open before joining to knit that hat in the round. Like the KIS mitts, this hat makes a last minute gift for a friend or yourself.

Main Color is Valley Yarns Stockbridge (140, 160 yds)
Contrast Color uses (9, 12) yds per repeat; (36, 48) total yds
