Olenska is, quite possibly, my favorite hat design ever. Quick to knit, simple enough for television knitting, while still being interesting enough to knit. Choose one skein of any color of WATERshed and get this hat done in just one night! It really is a ONE SKEIN WONDER!!

Please Note: This hat is knit at quite a loose gauge, this is intended. If you would like a tighter hat simply go down one needle size and you will be set.
