The Gentle Hat uses 7 different shades of Alpaca (50g balls of Dale Alpakka). If you get a 2nd ball of just the off-white (for a total of 8 balls), you’ll be able to make three identical Gentle Hats. If you’re using a substitute yarn, doubling the amount of the background color will do the same trick.
