Firefly Hat by Outi Kater

The stranded colourwork pattern of this hat is complemented by four-colour corrugated ribbing; the crown shaping is achieved using centered double decreases. This design, which comes in two sizes, uses small amounts of each shade of the yarn, so it is ideal for using up leftovers in your stash.
