This is me in my new tri-color Troche. I didn't have enough worsted weight yarn on hand to make the whole hat out of one color, so I came up with this combo--and it pleases me.
Click on the photos for a larger image. I knit one stitch of one color and one of the other for transition round on the brim. The crown was two and two.
The pleat was a little trickier. I had a little solid brown left, so I used slipped stitches to continue that color in the pleat while knitting the rest of the round in the multi.
There are four little stalactites of the multi growing down from the crown. I plan to sew the pleat a little more firmly in order to make them more effective when worn. You can't tell from this photo, but they look pretty cool.
If you plan to knit this pattern for yourself (and I highly recommend it---it's a blast), be sure to check my project page (not up yet---link coming soon) because there are a couple of typos in it.
