Show your excitement for Hillary Clinton’s historic presidential nomination with your very own “I’m With Her” hat! Wear it on November 8th (and then for the next 8 years!) and show the world that we’re stronger together!

This hat is worked with stranded colorwork, but special attention needs to be paid on rows where there are long gaps between colors. Make sure to catch inactive yarns every 4-5 stitches to avoid really long floats. Here’s a video tutorial that explains the technique further:

Also, because of the floats, the hat will be less stretchy than your usual stockinette stitch. If you need to add more room in the hat, I’d recommend adding an extra vertical column of MC sts to the end of the chart, so you’ll have 2 plain columns of MC between each chart repeat. That would add about 1.5” in this gauge.
