#wwscrapalong is a thing!

Join us in the Woolly Wormhead group as we knit along together! Share your oddments stash and scrapalong progress on social media with the #wwscrapalong tag.

The Hat will use 100g or so of oddments, and the more the merrier so that you can mix up colours and textures! I’ve written two types of crown shaping into the recipe, both of which are shown here, but with a quick bit of maths you can opt for a smoother beanie type of crown (it’s not tricky, I’ll talk you through it).

For my samples I used 4ply and sock yarn leftovers and mini skeins (yes! use your mini skeins! gradients, even? gradients would be so cool) but you can use whichever you have plenty of in your stash. I’ve done the maths and allowed for yarn weights from fine sock right through to chunky, in 6 different head sizes (you wouldn’t expect anything less, right?)

You will want to do a gauge swatch, or at least have a clear idea for how your leftovers worked up when you used them on your main project - I’d hate for you to work through this then not have your Hat fit! Although I’ve covered 6 sizes in an as many yarn weights, it’s possible your exact gauge might not be in the chart, and that’ll mean maybe a little bit of extra number crunching, but not much.

As each instalment becomes available (via my blog and Instagram, which will also post to FaceBook and in turn post a link to Twitter) do comment away on individual posts, but please remember that it’s just me, and try and keep requests for help to relevant blog posts, Instagram and Ravelry to help keep it manageable - thanks!
