Color Break Hat
Color Break is a simple pattern that works wonderfully with highly variegated yarns, breaking up the colors and preventing pooling. The simple slip-stitch pattern creates a thick fabric with a great deal of texture, for a very warm hat without a lot of extra effort. For such an easy pattern the result is very dramatic in a variegated yarn, and attractive as a texture in a one-color yarn.
