Colorful Ribbed Hat
This hat is knitted using the "stranded knitting" technique: knitting with two different yarns in the same row. I use both English and Continental knitting, “throwing” the yarn in one hand and “scooping” with the other; the result is a corrugated, raised rib. 1 Minute Videos Here!
You can use solid colors-changing them as you go, two long run colorways-naturally shifting-see below, two variegated yarns, or one variegated or longrun and one solid. You can become proficient in stranded knitting and end up with a very cool hat!
