Knit Hat
If you love working with vibrant colors, then this quick-to-knit hat pattern is perfect for you. The design not only features neon pink and yellow stripes, but the yarn used for the stripes is reflective, so when you wear it out at night, the hat will reflect light from cars, street lamps, and flash photography. A great option for nighttime walks or bicycle rides! Maggie shares excellent tips for working jogless joins in the round, so the stripes will line up seamlessly. The beanie is finished off with a giant pink fluffy pompom—after all, this hat is not about subtlety.
