A brim for a little shade and a modern print for a little style make this cap too cool. This project is on the adventurous side with short-row shaping and some stranded colorwork involved but there is truly no project better suited to practice new techniques than a hat. Charlie is wearing size Child. Size up or add extra length in the body for a more slouchy fit. Colorwork pattern is both written and charted. Pattern includes template for brim material.
