I love a quick beanie, especially in worsted weight. This project creates a warm, squishy, winterful beanie that will keep you warm through the chillier months. The color combinations are endless, and can be tailored to your taste and style. If I am really concentrating, I can finish this pattern in less than a day (perfect for gift knitting!). Some tips for working the colorwork section: I do think this is a good pattern for first timers. For the chevron pattern- take your time. Make sure that the stitches you are stranding behind are spread out over the needle (not bunched up all together) so that you don’t pull too tight and create a scrunched fabric. If you wish to make the hat larger or smaller, you can add or subtract 6 sts from the overall stitch count and follow the pattern as normal.
