Cardo Holiday Hats: cozy knit hats in a series of 5 different stripe options in our bulky-weight Cardo yarn! We chose Cardo in Putty as our main color in each hat, and then played with different stripe sequences in a contrast color. To top it all off, we made a big festive pom pom!

Our free striped hat pattern arrives just in time for the holidays to knit mix and match striped hats for knit gifts - oh what fun it is to choose between (or all!) 5 different stripe options!
