Tamaraniac is slightly fitted but easy. This simple hat shape was designed to show off this really great long-color gradient yarn. Freia Fine Handpaints Ombré Sport, a joy to knit — really. Though this hat would also work beautifully with another hand dye with a shorter color change or even a solid color yarn. Knit from the bottom up, the ribbed brim can be worn flat or folded. Start this hat now and you’ll have it complete even before all the leaves are gone.
