Doodling in a notebook or drawing with chalk, graphic geometric patterns have always been a fun way to pass the time. This hat uses the same playful spirit of sketching with chalk, with bright hues of Three Irish Girls yarn against a dark gray ‘blacktop’ background. The repetitive and predictable design makes for a relaxing knit, while frequent color changes keep things exciting. The result is an eye-catching beanie with a bit of slouch, featuring graphic colorwork crown decreases that will make your inner child giggle with pleasure at your very own Chalk Drawings.
