Ida's Kitchen is a slouchy hat with fun chevron stripes. The colors of the original hat remind me of a friend's kitchen from the 1970's so I named it in honor of her mom, Ida.
This is a great pattern to use up those leftover bits of colors from other projects. Sport to DK weight yarns will work as long as you get gauge.
The sample shown was knit in Blue Sky Alpacas Melange and Sport Weight.
