I am a big fan of lists and “crossing things off the list” once I finish them. One of my goals for 2020 is to get back to pattern design. This hat is my first one in a long while. It’s full of color but uncomplicated. I think you will enjoy the twisted stitch pattern with slipped stitches on alternating rows to mimic the appearance of fancy colorwork. Releasing this hat marks my first 2020 goal crossed off my list!
