Highlighter Hat

I just released my first pattern of 2017, Highlighter Hat.

One day in late November, I popped in my LYS and chanced upon these three colors of Lang Yarns Novena, a bouncy chainnette yarn made of 50% merino, 30% alpaca, and 20% nylon. The colors – yellow-green, turquoise, and fuchsia – reminded me immediately of highlighter pens, and I knew I wanted to design something fun and bright for the winter!

See Highlighter Hat on Ravelry

Highlighter Hat is made of fun color blocks in three contrasting colors. Alternating sections of stockinette and an easy slipped-stitch pattern make this a quick and enjoyable knit. The hat is available in two styles: a closer-fitting beanie and a more relaxed, slouchy style.With or without a pom pom? Why not try both: the pattern includes a photo-tutorial for making a three-color removable pom pom.

My test knitters have come up with some great color combinations!
