Like the stars in a constellation, the swathes of colour in the Constellations Hat group together to paint a spectacular picture.

Worked in blocks to show off the tonal variations and variegations of hand dyed yarn, the palettes of the Constellations Collection range from soft, subtle, and gently lovely to bright, bold, and eye-catching.

We’ve suggested our favourite colour order, but it’s not the only option. These colours have all been carefully curated to work together, so you can follow along or chart your own colour adventure. Just choose your palette and cast on to see the colours play on your needles.

Designed especially for SpaceCadet’s Constellations Collection and kitted exclusively in Oriana (90% Superwash Merino, 420 yards/100g), one bundle of eight 20g miniskeins will make one hat and one pair of mitts. It will also work for small amounts of yarn - each Hat colour block requires approx 8g of yarn! It’s a perfect way to use ends and leftovers from treasured skeins.

Knit in a straightforward fashion from its ribbed brim to its quick crown decreases, this hat is perfect for beginners to start working in the round and offers practice with basic hat shaping and steady colour changes. For more experienced knitters, it’s a canvas for their creativity - colour blocks, stripes, colourwork, textured stitches… the possibilities are endless!

Gorgeous colour palettes blending exciting variegated colours with subtle yet expressive semi-solids keeps the knitting engaging for novice and experienced knitters alike.
