Watercolor Winter Toque is a warm & cozy DK weight beanie featuring beginner-friendly stranded colorwork. This pattern was designed to be a quick, easy and fun stash-buster knit, possibly using leftover bits from the Watercolored Pullover or Winter Song collection sweaters, using four coordinating & contrasting colors from your DK weight yarn stash.

I love knitting hats because they are the perfect small project to check gauge before knitting a larger project - try out a new color combination you have in mind - or simply work on technique. Added bonus, you can have a new finished knit in just a weekend!
