I started and frogged a hat 6 times before settling on a simple 2x2 rib. The yarn has no stretch so it needed the stretchiness of a simple rib pattern to work. It doesn't do a perfect rainbow stripe as is. It goes red, orange, yellow, green, back to yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, back to purple, red, orange, etc. So to get a perfect rainbow, knit to the middle of the blue-green colour, cut them wind it and cut again in the middle of the pure blue colour. Then restart your knitting starting with the blue you just finished winding. Everyone in the house loves our Pride hats!
