The Montara hat pattern from Freia Handpaint Yarns uses a pretty zig-zag pattern and what looks like a bunch of different colors, but its actually accomplished by working with two strands of the same colorway. How cool is that?
The pattern is available for $5.50, and in the yarn shown it would run you $36. That sounds like a lot for a hat, but it sure is pretty, and I’ll bet it would make you or whoever you knit it for smile every time they put it on.
