Honey Striped Hat
Honey Striped Hat by Westknits | Choose three colors of DK weight yarn to knit this slip stitch hat. Begin with a ribbed brim and then work stripes and slipped stitches to form the bold honeycombs. Only one strand of yarn is used at a time for a deceptively simple textured effect. Pop a pom pom on it and enjoy your new Westknits hat!
