Hat #2 of 3 that I been planning to make and stashbust this winter. I have been meaning to use the white Diamond Merino Superwash DK yarn for years. It’s been in my stash since at least 2007! The problem was that the ball is only about 125m DK yarn which is not enough for most adult hat patterns. I recently found this very popular stranded hat pattern and used the merino with some alpaca I had leftover from Buttercup which incidentally, I have rarely worn unlike the Twenty Ten cardigan which I am wearing in these photos. I’m wondering if this hat will be on the heavy hat rotation or will be stored away with knit items I do not wear much or at all.
