Our brains are wired to love things in threes, and we also like to have options! Here is a pattern that does both. Match 3 includes three colorwork hat patterns, with options for a ribbed or hemmed edge. Each design is worked in three colors, and is designed in three sizes to fit most everyone.

One, Two, Three - A, B, C, its easy as One, Two Three! This simple hat will get you in the colorwork game. Pick three colors, play with the order and have some fun!

Bokeh - Crisp air, crunchy leaves and cider donuts. Three clear signs it’s festival time! It seems like adding little lights everywhere brightens the longer evenings and is one sure way to know it’s time for warm hats to keep our ears cozy!

Show Your Colors - More fun with threes! This graphic design is made for showing your colors – maybe it’s your favorite team, or maybe your favorite colors. Go bold, or go with something subtle, either way, you can’t go wrong! Pick three, mix them up and see what happens.
