LOSY stands for left over sock yarn. Anyone who knits socks has a supply of leftover yarn and orphan skeins and you don’t know quite how to use them all up. This is a simple unisex hat pattern that uses the leftovers and orphan skeins of sock yarn for a uniquely colored hat. Use two strands at a time and when you finish one ball, simply pick up another one. You can use orphan skeins as a main color and keep changing the leftover yarns as you work up the hat. Pretty soon your scrap sock yarn is used up and you can justify purchasing new sock yarn!

My pattern is similar to the original LOSY Hat pattern in that it uses leftover sock yarn. This is just another hat pattern to use your leftover and orphan sock yarn.

Oops, there is a mistake in Round 1 of the Right Swirling hat. It should be a k2tog, not a y2tog.
