This is the second pattern inspired by a collection of single and part skeins of all the colours of yarn in my stash making it perfect for using up those individuals that insist on multiplying while you’re not looking.

Knit in the round from crown to brim, the pattern includes full written instructions as well as charts of the colour work portion making it suitable for all knitters who are comfortable knitting in the round.

Instructions in 3 sizes – relaxed approximate measurements are:
Hat Length as written – S 18cm/7½ inches, M 19.5cm/7¾ inches L 20cm/8 inches
Circumference – S -40 cm/16 inches, M -45 cm/18 inches, L -50 cm/20 inches
The large size comfortably fits my 58 cm/23 inch head
Length is customisable but may impact yarn requirement

If using 2 colours the large size easily works with 90 metres/97 yards of the main colour and 70 metres/75 yards of the contrast.
The small size requires 70 metres/75 yards of the main colour and 55 metres/60 yards of the contrast.

If using 3 or more colours smaller amounts of each colour are required.
The red/blue/geen example is size large and used 75 metres/80 yards blue, 50 metres/55 yards red and 25 metres/30 yards green.

The pattern has been successfully test knit - Thank you ladies.
