Every Flavour

As soon as I saw the original twelve shades of Milarrochy Tweed I knew I wanted to use all of them! Stacked short row sections create bright waves travelling around the hat, while contrasting welts add texture. This hat uses two balls of the main colour and small quantities of the other shades - the perfect use for leftovers from other projects.

Beginning with a tubular cast on and a few rounds of rib, each section of this hat is shaped by short rows and coloured welts that form gentle waves around the hat. An optional pompom adds final flourish.
