The Minty hat is pure candy knitting. Cast on, knit ‘round and ‘round, decrease, bind off, wear it. The perfect little confection to snack on when your other knitting is getting a bit too serious.

Minty is a highly adaptable hat and will be comfortable in any season the knitter chooses. Knit it from cotton and wear it year round, or whip up a wool version to keep you snuggly during the chilly months. Any way you slice it you’ve got some serious instant gratification going on.

Like the stripes but worried about jagged color joins? Don’t stress! The eyelet panel is conveniently placed at the end of the round to help conceal any flaws that may occur during color changes.
