Hats are knit holding two strands of the recommended DK wt. yarn together as one, to create one bulky weight yarn.

"A friend's request for a fun, machine-washable, non-pastel baby hat sent me to my local yarn shop in search of inspiration. When I got there, I was horrified to learn that, a) they were going out of business and, b) they had already sold off most of their stock.

Undaunted, I pawed through the sale bins, elbowing more than a few bargain hunters in the process, until I came across the perfect yarn. Great colors: check. Machine washable: check. Merino wool: a bonus! But only one or two balls of each color remained, and they were going fast.

No time to choose a pattern or decide which shades would go well together. I just scooped them all up and ran, determined to do something spontaneous and creative once I got home.

Although six different colors are specified for the hat, you won’t come close to using them up. By combining the colors in various ways, you could get as many as five or six hats out of the six balls of yarn, depending on the size(s) chosen.”
