The only thing vanilla about this hat is the pattern!

You can go crazy with your hat by choosing colourways that are wildly variegated, speckled or even combining two semi-solid colourways.

You will be using 3 strands of the same skein of fingering weight yarn so the colour distribution will be fairly unpredictable. That’s what will make each hat unique! Far from being vanilla at all.

Intermediate to expert knitters will find that the brim, body and crown are all plain vanilla but the hat will be interesting when using the wildest colourways you have in your stash.
