I just love color work in knitting. Designing this hat was a personal challenge and I wanted to create one for each season. Hats and other accessories are quick and provide immediate enjoyment. This hat uses 10 different colors in the yellow to brown range. However, it has been done in a number of different color combinations and is therefore a wonderful way to de-stash. I have tried to provide enough information that even the beginner to stranded work can enjoy knitting this tam. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, purl, colorwork, stranded, fairisle, knitting in the round, able to read a color chart GAUGE 7.5 stitches per inch worked on size 3 (3.25mm) needles. Typically, I personally have to go up one needle size to obtain gauge - doesn't matter what pattern I do, but that is just me. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fits an average adult head SUGGESTED YARN 460 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Knit Picks Palette COLORWAY 10 different colors

  • Size 2 (2.75mm) 16" circular needles

My life is currently hijacked by caregiving for my father. I used to be found mucking about with my horse, gardening, hanging with my dog, Nana or playing with fiber - the kind you knit not the kind you eat. Now, I am trying to learn the value of patience.
