Product details

Super fun, slightly slouchy hat made with stranded colourwork technique.

The DK Knitcol contrast yarn I chose has short colour repeats (think self-striping sock yarn) so that the “buttons” change colour a couple of times a row. There are many delicious colourways of this yarn to match any background colour, some of which would be ideal for a boy version with camouflage colours or more masculine tones.

You don’t have to match the gauge of your main yarn with your contrast yarn, so you can use a thinner or thicker yarn if you have a particular yarn you want to use. This will be equally fun with a solid contrast yarn or one with less variability in colour.

Note that I’m a pretty loose knitter, so most knitters will want a larger needle than the one stated in the pattern. Suitable needles are shown below.
