The Friendship Hat is a super cute beanie that is fun and fast to make! Use your favorite color combo to give this hat stripes, or make it in one solid color! It’s so versatile!

I used a combination of Caron Simply Soft and Knit Picks Chroma yarn, which are both worsted weight (#4) yarns. However, feel free to use any worsted weight (#4) yarn you’d like. Just be sure to check gauge!

Knit Picks Chroma is a gorgeous self striping yarn that comes in a variety of color combos. Although it does vary in thickness throughout the ball, I haven’t found it to be a problem in the items I’ve used it for.
