It all started with this “zombie” skein of Anya which we used as a tester for dyes at a workshop held in November 2017.
It’s not the prettiest skein but it had potential so I decided to play around with it and thought I could split them into two or three equal balls and knit them at the same time. I had to do some knitting math, nothing too difficult but still not something I do on a regular basis so it took a bit longer than I would have liked. I started knitting and with 3 strands held together, the hat worked up so quickly.
Pleased with my progress, I decided to pull out another skein of sock yarn, this time Luna to see if I could repeat the results. And I did! Spurred by this success, I decided to write out the pattern. And then the holidays happened. And there was a move from one town to another. You know how it is. I managed to send the pattern out to testers who all came back to me rather quickly so I am grateful to all of them.
The pattern is now available on Ravelry as a free download. You can get it here: Vanilla Hat. I hope you will enjoy making many colourful hats with this pattern.
