Are you as obsessed with knitting as I am? Then you need this hat! While to uninitiated this pattern may seem just chevrons, every fellow knitter will be in the know. Big Stitch Beanie is a colorwork hat that is, in essence, big loops of stockinette. Colorwork here is simple enough to have a beginner knitter moving along with confidence. It is also captivating for the mind of an advanced knitter, who would be going for “just one more row” to see the picture appear in their hands.
