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!
*Sizes:  Adult (20” around, 8.5” deep), *You can make the hat larger or smaller by casting on any number that is divisible by 8

2—1 oz/120 yd baby cakes of Heather Fingering Yarn
(Ex: 2 Long Run Color way, 1 Long Run + 1 Solid, or 2 Variegated)
Needles: US 2 - 16” circular needles, US 2 double pointed needles

Know How:  advanced beginner, determined, stranded knitting 
techniques are used in this project.
