Stripy Hat

Striping and mixing colors are some of the best things about knitting. You can choose your favorite colors, your team or school colors, or whatever you’d like! It’s fun and easy to make bright or pastel colors show up in your knits. The large pom-poms at the top of this hat are super fun, too. You may want to make two, or just one, or maybe none at all. Any way you go about it, you will end up with an adorable striped hat. Knitting is all about making your knits your own!

Materials Needed:

Size: One size to fit a large child, teen, or small adult

Yarn: Small amounts of Bulky weight in 7 colors (about 200 yards total).

Note: This is a great project to use up leftover yarns! Just make sure they are all Bulky weight.
