The Allamanda Hat is first knit in typical Fair Isle style (only two colors at once.) When the knitting is done, you have the option to get carried away with some simple embroidery in the accent colors: nothing too fancy - just duplicate stitch, straight stitch and a few French knots (although I’d love to see your fancy renditions!) 
The pattern includes greyscale and colorized charts for both the multi-colored, embroidered version and a two-colored, unadorned version. There are separate charts for the band and the main portion of the hat, so you can do one part multi-colored, one part two-colored, if you’d like. Of course, in addition to all of the usual knitting info, the embroidery instructions are included, too.
