One of the very best hat designs you’ll ever make. A Rainbow-style derivative, this is a quick and easy project for almost any yarn. Ideal for small amounts of precious yarns. A soft, wool-rich yarn will be warmest and will hold its shape best. The hat fits a wide range of head sizes and can be customized in many ways, or knit as a headband by omitting the crown of the hat - a great first knitting project.

Between 4 - 8 stitches/inch depending on yarn used
