I wanted to knit a go to fingering weight brioche slouch hat that could be knit in 1 or 2 colors using the same 2 skeins of yarn. You can easily get 3 hats out of the same two 400 yard skeins (one 2 color, and 2 one color). Or use left overs from bigger projects as each hat takes under 250 yards. The hat is one size fits most, 8” x 18” (super stretchy, will fit up a 22-25” head comfortably). I knit mine using Mister Wool Mr. Merino Singles. You will have access to both the 1 Color and the 2 Color version as individual pdf downloads.
