It’s always difficult to visualize the outcome when buying painted or dyed yarn in varying colors and shades. I loved the colors in this wool yarn and wanted to knit another hat using one of my favorite hat patterns.
So here is the result. It took me a little over a skein and this yarn doesn’t come in matching dye lots so the colors in the second skein (shown) were a little different than the one I used for the main portion of the hat. But no one would notice.
I’ll use the rest of the skein for part of a scarf or mittens.
One thought on “Knitting a Hat With Painted Yarn”
It looks so beautiful!
The pattern in the hat reminds me a little of the first thing i ever knitted, a simple sweater top that was just 2 rectangular panels sewn together. The variegated yarn looked like this when done.
What a beautiful hat, & lovely yarn. 🙂
