I don’t know about you, but I have
lots of leftover yarn. This yarn comes
in all colors and weights. It’s not
enough to make a single project. I
always have had a fascination with
the sock yarn blanket or hex puff
blanket for using up my remnants,
but let’s face it…that just isn’t going to
happen. For one I think it would take
me a million years just to complete.
So I decided on a quicker solution to
using up that excess yarn. You can
use fingering weight yarn or worsted
weight for this hat. Technically the
gauge is for a worsted weight
version. Since I have so much
fingering weight leftovers I just held
them double to get that worsted
gauge. One of the greatest things
about this pattern is its flexibility. You
can do whatever you like with the
color and the color changes. Want
more of a striped version just change
color more often. Use this “recipe” to
make whatever crazy hat you wish.
Enjoy!
