As with all my previous patterns, I designed this one because I could not find a pattern that I liked for the yarn and style that I wanted.

This simple hat makes good use of mini sock skeins or sock yarn leftovers. I have made two versions of this pattern. The first, original version uses a set of mini skeins, which is how Havirland Yarns used to sell the Cupid’s Mix kit. The second version uses the newer Cupid’s Mix Frankensocks kit, which is comprised of 20 mini bobbins of yarn. For both patterns rows of color are alternated to gradually fade from one to the next, and three different colors are used at a time for each pattern repeat, as demonstrated in the charts provided. I love the artistic and busy (but not too busy) look of this beanie. Create a color scheme you enjoy and watch the magic unfold!

Please note: The sizes run a bit big for slouchiness, so if you are unsure go down a size. For the mini skein version my daughter is shown wearing size Large; for the mini bobbin version she is wearing size Medium. The Large fit my husband perfectly, and his head circumference is 21.5”.
