Piccolo from Tricotbec is a fun and pretty stranded colorwork hat with moderate slouch. It is started with a tubular cast on and worked from the brim up in a simple 2 colors abstract pattern. Piccolo is a fast knit because of the sport weight yarn and, like every pattern in the collection, is a great gift as well as a stash buster too! Piccolo is available in only one size, with a very stretchy brim that should fit heads from 19” to 22”. Change needle sizes to accommodate smaller or larger heads.
