Tunisian honeycomb pattern, color changes, and short-rows combine to form delightful stripes on this cheeky toque. Variations in color choice can result in a bold graphic or a muted stripe. Suitable for men, women, and children, this hat is a playful canvas for mastering several techniques in a small and satisfying project. Leave the top pointed or fold it over the crown.
