Tetris Knit Hat

I have been daydreaming about this hat for a long time. I made the chart for it months ago and was just waiting for someone to make it for. For Christmas, I made my boyfriend's family knit items and he mentioned his brother likes video games and likes colorful designs. So I decided to make my chart into a reality and knit this hat for him. It is more difficult than the 2-colored stranded hats because it has a lot of colors (at one point, I was working with red, orange, yellow and blue at the same time) but as long as you wrap the non-worked colors behind the work every 2-3 stitches and keep the tension loose, the hat will maintain its stretch. See here for an example of this.
