The techniques I use in designing this 2-piece coordinated accessory set create color patterns that pop without the fuss of stranded color work or intarsia. Both Fantome Hat is worked in the round from bottom-up, one color at at time. The visor in Fantome Hat is worked by picking up stitches along the hat's cast-on edge. The motifs are created through a combination of slipped and twisted stitches. The combination of stripes and twisted stitch colorwork results in a pattern that looks deceptively harder than it really is.
