This slouchy hat with lots of colored stripes adds a tropical flavor to the average beanie. It has plenty of eyelets throughout the knitting for a nice breezy cover that works well in winter or spring.
The loom knit pattern is free on the website. Because you change colors several times it’s a great opportunity to use up some left over yarn. Give it a try then send me some pictures.
