Add a little brightness to a cold day.  I love the colours and texture of this beanie.  The hat is knit up with an Irish Moss stitch in a worsted weight wool.  A big increase after the ribbed brim and a quick decrease at the crown gives it an awesome slouch. 

Pick any five fun colours in your stash to make yours.    My beanie is knit up in warm colours and kind of reminds me of a beautiful sunset, I love the contrast with the orange-yellow at the top, it totally pops.   Not sure which colours to pick? Google ‘awesome color combinations’ for some inspiration.
