The Fireworks Hat is a bite-sized version of the Fireworks Cardi. This classic stitch looks amazing in multicolored yarns and one 100 skein of most worsted weights will make one cozy hat. Choose a solid or tweed for a classic tailored look or a multicolor for a bold look. The allover star stitch texture looks like a display of bright fireworks and is just as mesmerizing to knit.

Construction Details:
The Fireworks Hat is worked in the round from the brim towards the crown. Smaller needles are used for the brim and the larger needles are used for the body and crown, as the star stitch is most comfortable to knit and wear when worked loosely.
