Robberson is a simple colorwork hat knit from the bottom up. The pattern is written for two styles: a two-color version and a three-color version, both using just one skein of Shibui Knits Drift for each color. Robberson is designed to have a snug fit with dense colorwork fabric to keep out the cold, while still being soft and cozy to wear.

Robberson is a great pattern for your first-time knitting colorwork or a fun weekend project for more seasoned knitters.
