A fast knit combines with speedy electric blue cables racing along the length of a garter stitch hat. A perfect introduction to stranded knitting worked back and forth vertical stripes makes the wrongside knitting just as easy as the rightside knitting. Shaped with short rows and modular construction this knit is quick and interesting.
