Tiny Hearts Hat
The Tiny Hearts Hat is the perfect introduction to stranded color work. You only work the second color every other row, you don’t decrease with both colors (instead using only the main color), and the hat can be made for boys and girls, men and women!
I love making this hat in reds and pinks for Valentine’s Day, but I’ve been working bunches of this hat in all different colors for donation lately (more on that later). Pattern is written for a beanie style hat, but simply adding a few extra rows of color work before decreases will increase the slouch!
Two skeins Lion Brand Wool Ease (80% acrylic 20% wool; 197 yards/180 meters per 85 grams)
You will use about half of one skein for MC, approximately 40 yards CC
Feel free to substitute in any worsted or aran weight yarn – most big box craft store worsted weight (size 4) yarns will work for this hat.
