Does anyone have leftover fade colors that are just sitting in your yarn cabinet? I do! I loved my fade so much, I couldn’t bear the thought of all that beautiful yarn just sitting there. So, I created the Faded Beanie! Use your leftover yarns or even create a fade using mini skeins!


Fingering Weight Yarn: I used a 6 color fade for this project.
Color A: Brighton Rock (25 grams)
Color B: You’re My Best Friend (10 grams)
Color C: Fat Bottomed Girls (10 grams)
Color D: Save Me (10 grams)
Color E: Play the Game (10 grams)
Color F: The Hero (10 grams)

Recommended Needles: Size US 2 1/2 (3.0 mm) for brim and US 4 (3.5 mm) for body of hat.

This hat fits a 22 inch head. (M)
I used a stitch count with a multiple of 8 stitches. So if you’d like to make changes to the size, just add/decrease 8 stitches.
