Looking for a stashbuster? This is a nice, simple slouchy hat construction. You can follow the fun, stashbusting stripe instructions, or you can just use this pattern as a basic structure for a slouch hat made with any fingering-weight yarn.
If you like this pattern, check out the matching Scrunchy Ombre Arm Warmers pattern, available from Knit Picks as either a single PDF download or as part of the Under 100 Knit Collection book and ebook. Both patterns make great stashbusters.
You can use up the seemingly-useless, tiny balls of leftover sock yarn that are sitting in your stash (if it’s anything like mine). If you have a small kitchen scale, simply weigh a pile of up to 50 grams of sock yarn, and you’ll know you have enough.
Don’t forget to join us in the Aknitica Designs group on Ravelry! It’s a great place to talk over colour choices and give the rest of us inspiration. 🙂
The colours used in my sample are Knit Picks Palette in
Size: One. Fits Adult/Teenager
Yarn: 50 grams of fingering-weight
Needles: Size 3 US (3.25 mm) circular needles for knitting in the round. A 16″ will work for most of the hat, but you’ll need 2 circs (Or Magic Loop or dpn’s if your prefer) for the crown shaping.
