Criss Cross Striped Hat

Criss Cross Striped Hat

From the Blogger: "The Criss Cross Hat is warm, colorful and made using X stitches that turn into twisting stripes. This winter hat has a wide brim that can be turned up or left down for the slouchy look. Use your favorite worsted weight yarn. Add a pom pom or leave it plain, either way it will look great! Use two colors as stated in the pattern or use more than two colors to create a fun kaleidoscope of color. The color combinations are endless! "

NotesWhen doing the color work, you will be carrying the non-working yarn across to the next stitch. If you keep one color to the front and the other color to the back, it will keep them from twisting around each other.
