I love knitting hats.  Their size makes them perfect stash busters as well as being portable projects that travel from work, to errands, to carpools, to waiting in line at the bank with equal ease.  Hats are also an excellent way to play with color and try out new knitting skills that might be intimidating in larger projects.

Joni is worked using a number of color-work techniques.  The herringbone section is created with traditional stranding.  Slipped stitches are used on the vertically striped bands that flank the herringbone and the crown is adorned with classic stripes.  Have fun experimenting with color & yarn texture on this hat.  Your imagination is your only limit.
