This simple and repetitive colorwork motif is made incredibly fun when worked in Spincycle Yarns’ Dyed in the Wool.

It is possible to adjust size by changing needle size. It is also possible to work this hat as a beanie rather than a “slouchy” hat. To do this, work Rows 7-12 of the colorwork motif once, then work Rows 1-12 twice more before beginning the decrease chart.
