Ride On was designed to highlight the changing colors in Spincycle’s Dyed in the Wool yarn. This hat is knit from the bottom up, in the round with some easy colorwork rows. Watching the colors change as you go makes this one go fast. You could also create your own striping with bits of partials on hand.
