Peavine is an easy to work stranded-knitting pattern in which the end result is all about the interplay of colors and shapes. This slouchy style hat looks great in all sorts of color combos so don’t be afraid to pick some of your favorites and have fun!
Peavine is named after the mountain out my back door that I hike on almost everyday. The colors I see out there are very much reflected in the colors I chose for this hat.
