Technicolor Beanie Pattern
This worsted weight ‘Technicolor Beanie’ is knit in two-color stranded colorwork to create a colorful geometric design. This design calls for four colors. And, although three colors are used for the body of the hat, you will only ever be knitting with two at once. When choosing colors, I suggest using high contrast and a light neutral for color C to make the design stand out.
Using US 8 (5.0mm) needles:
21 sts and 25 rows make a 4” (10cm) square in stockinette stitch, unblocked, knit in the round.
20 sts and 23 rows make a 4” (10cm) square in main fair isle pattern, feel free to reference this gauge once the main portion of the hat is established.
