Long print yarns stripe as you knit--no color changing an no ends to weave in. Knitting magic!
Knitting for kids doesn't get any better than this: minimal shaping, yarn that self-stripes and a funky hat that is as fun to knit as it is fun to wear! Match up a striping yarn with a solid, or be daring and just use the self-striping yarn on its own, letting the stripes fall where they may.
