Easy Thick & Quick Hat Knitting Pattern- a colorful and warm hat made with Lion Brand’s Thick & Quick self striping yarn.
Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick & Quick is one of my favorite yarns to use for winter hats. When I saw that they had created a Mandala version of Thick & Quick, I knew I had to try it out! The Mandala yarns have long self-striping colorways. They create wide stripes without the need to weave in ends from different color yarns.
Another reason I love Thick & Quick is that it knits up really fast. It took less than 3 hours to make this hat!
