Stripes and Strands
Description from pattern: “Behold my ‘Stripes and Strands’ hat, knit from two skeins of sock yarn, one solid, one self-striping. This hat was inspired by my first foray into stranded knitting, the Semi-Norwegian Oak Leaf Hat …. I wanted to try a) mixing stranded and plain knitting and b) using a self-striping yarn as both ‘background and ‘featured yarn’ in the same project. The hat has a solid navy background with two bands of stranded work and a central band of the self-striping yarn in a simple knit stitch.”
Yarn note from pattern: “One skein each of a solid and a self-striping sock yarn (a single-sock sized skein in each color will be more than sufficient).” (The yardage listed above is therefore excessive.)
Also needed: stitch marker, yarn needle.
