This has is perfect for any beginner looking to complete a project that will awe friends. I used to teach this hat as the final project for the Knitting 101 class at my LYS. It was always a hit with men and women. The color combinations are endless. Blend it with a long color repeat yarn and get a hat that looks amazing!! A friend of mine told me that her dad once said that if women knew how saucy men think hats are they'd wear them more often. With its distinctive construction, fashionable colors and modern shape this hat fits the bill. It is an easy knit that a beginner can learn a lot from and an expert will have fun knitting. NOTES: Brim worked back and forth then sts are pu to work the rise of the hat. The color sequence follows Fibonacci numbering.
