Subtly colorful stripes—three wide or six narrow, depending on your preference—encircle this pair of beanies. Each stripe is worked in a slipped stitch pattern of heathery yarns, creating a graphic, yet understated, effect. Lovely texture is created using a simple slipstitch pattern, making for fun, easy knitting!
