When you find a good pattern, you stick with it. I love this one from Caron x Pantone by way of Knifty Knittings and decided to make the most of my yarn and experiment with different color arrangements.
In the spirit of using up yarn and chipping away at (or at least not adding to) my giant stash, I thought making three hats from the same yarn would help, but now I just have small amounts of all five colors left. Does anyone’s chihuahua need a winter hat?
These hats are knit in the round and, despite the intricate fair isle pattern, it’s a really quick and easy project. It only took a night to knit one!
Joann Fabrics has these cute faux-fur pompons which work great for the tops. I love this gray hat topper—and it was only a couple bucks! It helps even out the price of the wool yarn from a fancy yarn shop. I am very weak once I enter one of these places…especially when I have in-depth conversations with the owner and spend three hours touching her yarns.
And, if at this point in the blog you’re asking yourself just what does a hat look like on a human head?! Ask no more. I apologize for this, and also you would not believe how many times I attempted retaking it. Cheers to winter!
