Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2005:
Erica Alexander has used short rows to shape these delightful hats. Each triangular short-row segment is worked with a different color to create bright wide bands reminiscent of beach balls or circus tents.

Finished Size: About 23¼“ (59 cm) circumference

Yarn: Tahki Donegal Tweed (100% wool; 183 yd [167 m]/100 g): #874 burgundy, #845 purple and #897 gold, 1 skein each.

Needles: Size 8 (5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Waste yarn for provisional cast-on; spare needle for grafting; tapestry needle.
