Take advantage of today’s lovely variegated yarns to make a simple fair isle design look complex! This hat uses just two colors - either a solid and a variegated, or two contrasting solids. The hat uses less than a skein of each color, and with Rios, you can probably get two hats out of two skeins by reversing the main and contrast colors on each.

Skills needed: knitting in the round, reading a chart, and working decreases.

Please check your gauge! As designed, this hat is 20” around, which stretches comfortably to fit a 22” head. To adjust your size, use smaller needles for a smaller finished size, or larger needles for a roomier hat. Malabrigo Rios is what I would consider a “light” worsted, so using a different yarn will also affect your gauge. Better to know ahead of time what size hat you’ll end up with… please swatch.
