Colorwork Owl Hat Knitting Pattern

This owl hat is a great introduction to stranded knitting since the design is simple. Stranded knitting involves using two colors of yarn to create a pattern. The yarn that isn’t being used is carried across the back of the work.

This beanie is knit in the round and the colorwork chart begins after the ribbed brim is knit.
