The corrugated ribbing keeps ears snug while the intersecting stripes of the slipped stitches and rows make for a fun and fast knit! This pattern uses about 100yds of each color, making it possible to make two hats when using the suggested yarns.
Many thanks to my brother, my boy and Lorelei for modeling in the freezing cold!
12.15.10 Errata: When starting the main body of the hat, Rows 1 & 2 should say to "knit all remaining stitches in row" after the slip-stitch directions. Patterns downloaded after this date have this corrected. Thanks!
