Sometimes a pattern comes to my mind fully formed. That was the case with this easy colorwork hat. I wanted to use leftovers from previous projects, and I wanted to see large standing stone structures, such as Stonehenge, dancing around my hat. I got so excited about the various possible color combinations that I want to million of them! And since this hat comes in eight sizes, you can knit tons of them, too.

Skills:
Knitting in the round, twisted ribbing, simple stranded colorwork, k2tog decreases.
