Simple stranded colorwork with a modern graphic design, Bubble Tea combines traditional fit with fun contemporary visual style. For the samples, I used a combination of bold and neutral colors, suitable for both men and women; color choices are endless, allowing you to select the perfect match of colors for the wearer. Bubble Tea is one of a bundle of modern stranded hats featuring strong motifs for fresh style, and is pictured with some of the companion designs.
