As the charming sibling of the Voe Pullover, the Voe Hat features the same colorwork motif punctuated by tiny dashes of woven color. For those smitten with the cheerful peaks and valleys of the pullover, this hat pattern provides an opportunity to hone your stranding skills before taking on a larger colorwork project, or to knit up a festive, matching set. Whatever you choose, delight in the joy of assembling a palette that reflects your unique style.
