Fan Fare Hat
This quick hat is designed to be standard fare for sports fans of all stripes and uniforms.
Worked entirely in the round from the bottom up, a bit of stranded color work in your favorite team’s colors shows off your allegiance and keeps the knitting interesting. An optional pom pom in the contrasting color adds to the fun.
Note on Sizing: Due to the nature of stranded colorwork, this hat is not particularly stretchy. Choose a size that won’t require the colorwork to stretch much around the wearer’s head. For a bit more flexibility in sizing, you may wish to work either size in a slightly thicker yarn at a slightly wider gauge. As the pattern is written, size small will work well for older children and adults/teens with smallish heads, while size medium will fit most adult noggins.
Notes on Construction: The hat is constructed by casting on for the k2p2 ribbing and working in the round prior to the colorwork section. Some knitters may find it more comfort
