Do you love the look of colorwork, but hate the frustration of stranding or the tangled mess of intarsia? This hat features beautiful colorwork, playing on the changes in variegated yarn partnered with a solid coordinate - but without the fuss of stranding or intarsia! With this easy slip stitch pattern, you work just one color per round.

The Turtle Shell, named because of it’s distinctive patterning that resembles my favorite reptile friend, is worked in the round and features a folded-in brim so that there’s double warmth over the ears. The pattern works up quickly with worsted weight yarn (two skeins - one variegated, one matching solid) and size 7 16” circular needles. This pattern has easy to follow, full-color charts for the slip stitch
