December Stripes Hat

December Stripes Hat

I designed this simple hat expressly to use up scraps of worsted weight yarns lingering in my stash. Even the largest size hat requires very few yards of each color, making it a perfect stashbusting project.

In addition, December Stripes offers a quick way to try out techniques such as the Latvian braid and knitting with more than one color.
