Named for the experimental ship camouflage the British designed in WWI that it resembles, the Dazzle hat looks more complicated than it actually is! Knitted using fun, easy garter stitch short row stripes, this hat offers many options to play with color and works up super fast. Try it in two colors, or break out a four-color gradient set or ombré sock blank paired with a main color for a cool ombré effect. Also it works great for using up scraps!

This pattern is worked in a series of striped short row wedges, based on German swing knitting. Wedges one and three form “hills,” then you fill in around the hills with wedges two and four, until you’re back to a row that uses all the stitches.
