A hat to combine two, okay three, of my favorite things: Chickens, stranded colorwork and wool!

Rhode Island Red features a provisional cast on, lined brim and stranded colorwork.

The yarn for this hat is from Romney Ridge Farm in Maine. I knew I wanted to do a chicken hat but hadn’t found just the right yarn and had almost given up hope. I saw this yarn and eureka, my chicken hat came to life.
