Knit using 2 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted Merino, this hat makes great use of that beautiful skein of variegated yarn that you have been hoarding! Pair it with a coordinating solid yarn and you’ve got a beautiful, quickly knit hat! This pattern makes a great stash buster, as it can be easily be knit with partial skeins of at least 80 yards each.

Designed for the Malabrigo Quickies project. Thank you to Malabrigo for their generous yarn support, and to Alex Tinsley for her awesome encouragement!
