Stash busters



On a roll with these hats and they are great for using up those single balls of wool that have been hanging around. Each hat (adult size) takes about 50g of 8ply (or 2 strands of 5ply) on 4.5mm x 40cm circular needles, finishing off crown with 4 x DPNs when there are only a few stitches left. I have sorted odd balls into basic colourways and then added a ball of a contrast colour to be used for the main section of the hat. Easy peasy! Adding to the pile of charity knits...

Hats are such wonderful knitting - in the round so no seams, scope for design experiments, small and portable, quickly finished and in no need of a partner! Almnost the perfect project!

I've an addiction to single balls of wool - I've far too many, but they make great puppets. It's so nice to have a good choice of colours to combine together, as you've done so well with these hats!
