Striated is a simple yet striking two-color slipped stitch hat. (Say it five times fast!) Columns of slipped stitches help break up a variegated yarn but the design rocks in solid colors too. Chunky weight means it flies off the needles, so it’s perfect for gift knitting or when you need a quick accessory fix.

Using Malabrigo Chunky? You can get two hats out of one skein per color--just reverse the colors for the second hat. Give one to a friend or family member and wear your Striateds together! Sample shown in Mariposa (MC) and Pearl Ten (CC), 1 skein of each.
