One of my favorite patterns is the Meandros Hat. It features a Greek meander done in mosaic, or slip stitch, colorwork using only one color per row. It's easy, pleasant knitting and goes quickly without having to use a bulky yarn. It sits lightly on your lap while working and you can wear it different ways when finished.
This fun hat is modeled at left with a little slouch in it, which looks great, especially with all that curly hair. But it also looks wonderful pulled down over the ears for warmth. The yarn is resilient enough that you can wear the same size both ways.
These colors look great together, but you can check my Meandros Mittens post for other possibilities. I plan to start another one soon--this one looked so good on everyone!
