Pattern Description:

The inspiration behind this hat was the yarn. It had been purchased with the intention of being made into a pair of socks. As happens from time to time, the yarn had other ideas. It wanted to be a beret instead. The name came to be when I was looking at the finished beret and noticed how the different shades of red seemed to be "playing"...chasing each other round and round....from bottom to top.

This is a wonderful hat for those colorful skeins of yarn that you simply love but aren't quite sure what to do with. The pattern is simple allowing the colors of the yarn to be showcased which will result in a very fun and striking hat.

This would be a great pattern for handspun yarns as well.
