When madelinetosh’s Unicorn Tails came into our shop for the first time, I couldn’t resist! So many gorgeous tonal shades, so many options, so many beautiful color combinations! It felt like the wild west, or at least a new frontier. Tiny skein knitting! I took four colors home from the shop, and started to play, and the “Bad Ombré” hat was born!

This pattern uses four mini-hanks of madelinetosh’s beautiful Unicorn Tails, or any leftover 50-yard scraps of fingering weight yarn you have hanging about.

Four choices from light to dark, which knits up as a choose-your-own-adventure ombré!
