This hat is the foundations of your journey into colour. A simple structure, worked in the round, means you can quickly memorise a pattern you can return to and modify time and time again. Keep things simple and one tone, perhaps with a contrasting pom pom. Or step into a little stranded colourwork, with a simple one stitch colour change that keeps things gentle as you learn the art of working two colours of yarn.
