Break out of boring with this deceptively simple Hat. Rows of bricks stack up in a textural stitch pattern that allows you you the choice of using solid or variegated yarn for a range of effects. Since it also lends itself to easy adaptation for a different gauge, Arkanoid is an ideal stash buster.

Instructions for a generous six sizes are provided, with notes on knitting a less slouchy version, as well as tutorials for the crochet provisional cast-on and joining live stitches.
