When I received my skeins of Ram Jam I knew I wanted to make something using all four colours and a shaded pattern. This ‘diamond’ shading is common in Shetland knitting and I took the motif from my Uyea Legwarmers pattern. If you reverse your colours you should be able to get two hats out of four 50g skeins.
