This is a fun stripy, ziggy zaggy toque in four sizes from children to adults. With alternating stripes and colourwork, this is a great first project for stranded knitting. You’ll only ever work 2 colours at a time and for a maximum of 10 rows at a time. The in-betweens are simple stripes.

The hat is a little bit slouchy as written, with a suggested positive ease of 1”.
