Everyone needs a hat when it’s cold outside! This Mix and Match Hat pattern makes it easy for you to knit a personalized hat for each of your loved ones, no matter if they are big or small, babies or adults, kids or teens. 8 sizes are provided, and each of them is available in a beanie and a slouchy option, so all tastes - and all heads - are covered. The pattern includes 6 stranded colorwork stitch patterns, designed to be mixed and matched to create the perfect hat. The four prototypes give an idea to how these patterns can be used together, and if you feel like reproducing them exactly, the chart for each of them is also included. To make sure that your hat is perfect, pick the favorite colors of its lucky recipient. You can pick any number of colors between 2 and 6, to create any kind of color combo between “sober” and “rainbow”.
