This fun little hat is a great introduction to stranded colorwork. The pattern is easily memorized but has a striking visual impact.

For a similar look to the pictures, choose a solid, neutral yarn for the main color and a highly variegated yarn for the contrasting color.

(Adult version of this hat available here!)
