This stash-busting, bold hat works up quickly and makes a fun statement!

Use something plush like Hope Farm Alpacas 3-ply paired with a DK & lace-weight mohair held together, or knit it up in Plymouth Encore Worsted for a durable & hard-wearing hat.

Knit from the bottom up with a simple, modern stranded colorwork motif.
