This striped hat is a fun knit with waving bands of short rows in various textures. The unusual construction starts with a flat fabric that is folded together to form the interesting angles cascading into each other. Pick up stitches to close the top of the hat and choose between a folded brim or a clever earflap design option. Choose two colors of worsted weight yarn or use your leftover bits of yarn for a color blocked effect.
