For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: Two 50g balls of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK – Dyed (100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool, 112m/122yds per 50g) in shade A (750 Aubergine) and
One 50g ball of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK – Dyed in shade B.
Metres for shade A: 200m.
Metres for shade B: 90m.
Needles: 3.25mm and 4mm circular needles (40cm length) and a set of four double pointed 4mm needles.
Gauge (tension): 22 stitches and 26 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 4mm needles.
Size: To fit average size head.
My design ideas and advice: I am addicted to knitting this hat. There are so many different colourways to have fun with. The first one I designed was with a solid colour as shade A and a variegated one as shade B. Then I knitted another one where both shade A and B were solid shades, with shade B being slightly darker to give the hat a different dimension. I think I love knitting this pattern so much because there isn’t any sewing up, except securing those last 7 stitches.
