From the Churchmouse website:

“A bit of striping, a bit of ribbing—a bunch of cozy!” In this pattern, we blend the sportiness of stripes with the snug squish of ribbing to create a cozy, classic beanie! Our design uses a clever little trick to smooth up the stripes within the ribbing texture—an all-knit row (instead of the K2/P2 ribbing) as you change colors crisps up that definition! We also provide instructions for three different sizes, so you can make stripey hats for your whole family!

This two-page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by Laura Gehring
  • Tips on adjusting the height of the hat for more or less slouch
  • Instructions for finishing and blocking your piece
