This simple, gender-neutral beanie is a beginner-friendly, knit flat hat pattern. Use a self-striping yarn to highlight the garter stitches, which, when assembled, will form vertical “stripes” on the hat. Best of all, it’s a one-skein project! This is the third pattern in the Holiday Stashbusting Knit Along.
