These hats were invented as part of a introductory colorwork class at Stitch House Dorchester, in Dorchester MA, where they are still displayed.

Using just two balls of yarn, you can get a great variation of color!

This is a great first project for someone tackling stranding, and tries to walk you through holding yarns in two hands (picking/throwing). Enjoy!

Please note: Really, take the time to check your gauge in stranded knitting, and go up a needle size if needed! Two-color stranded colorwork works up MUCH tighter than regular, one-color stockinette.
