Check out this adorable nautical beanie! The anchor motif is perfect for anyone who loves sailing, the navy, nautical designs, the beach, and more! This hat is a great way to practice your 3 stranded color work, as most of the hat is knit using two strands, except for a handful of rounds that require all three at once. The color options are endless, and I have included several recommend color combination charts on the last two pages. This pattern includes a chart and written directions for FOUR different sizes…Newborn, Toddler, Youth and Adult so you can use it over and over again! Just three skeins of Caron Simply Soft will knit anywhere from 4 to 6 hats, depending on the size.

Be sure to carry the multiple colors of yarn loosely as you knit the hat, or it will pull and pucker. Be sure to check your gauge as it will depend entirely on how tightly you knit with multiple strands!
