Chocolate Fuzz is knitted in the round from the bottom up, on big needles, holding the 3 threads together throughout.
The sample uses about 75 meters of each colour. That means that with a bit of planning, you can get 3 lovely, light and fuzzy beanies out of the 3 balls of Kid-Silk.

1 skein of Schulana Kid-Seta (70% Mohair/30 % Silk, 211 m (230 y) / 25 gr, colour 11 Black

An accurate gauge is important and deviating will affect size and yardage. Having said that, you can use a different gauge to manipulate sizing.

size
One size: 52 cm circumference, 25 cm height, unstretched. Size can be altered easily (instructions are in the pattern) but this will affect your yardage!

The pattern has written out decreases for the crown, suggestions for altering the size and suggestions with links for blocking.
