Cast on and knit garter stitch back and forth for this quick and colorful hat. Picked up stitches transition into the stranded crown shaping. A pom pom and single crocheted edge add pops of color to the tippy top and bottom brim. Five different colors make this hat perfect for using up bits of leftover yarn.
