Whether you’re knitting this hat for yourself or a loved one, it is sure to bring a smile to your face. The three-color stitch pattern creates a playful checked motif, with cozy ribbing at the brim.

Two new yarns from Manos del Uruguay (Marla and Sami) create a wonderfully warm fabric, and the mission of Manos del Uruguay will make you smile even wider: they empower women in rural Uruguay to make a living using beautiful local wool and the skills inherited from their ancestors.

Happy knitting!
