Knit a Hat with Stripes on Stripes – Knitting


I really like self-striping yarn. It’s a simple technique to make a venture look tougher than it was, as a result of all it’s a must to do is preserve knitting and also you get these nice shade adjustments with none work in your half.

However do you know you can also make self-striping yarns much more attention-grabbing by combining them? Utilizing a few completely different colorways of self-striping yarn collectively can provide you even extra enjoyable stripes, and the mixture comes out wanting a little bit extra random as a result of they aren’t colours that had been deliberate to go collectively in the identical skein. 

That’s the concept behind the Stripes on Stripes Hat, designed by Lee Meredith and out there on Knit Picks.

However so as to add to the mixed-up enjoyable, you really use two completely different colorways and begin with the brim holding 4 stands of yarn collectively to make a brilliant squishy and heat brim. Then the 2 strands of every shade are separated and labored collectively so that you’ve a heavier hat than you in any other case would working with sock yarn.

The colour you’re working with adjustments each spherical, so that you get these little combined up stripes which might be simply so cute.

This may be a good way to make use of up a few of your sock yarn scraps (even when they aren’t self-striping) and make a singular colorway that’s additionally a good way to make use of these little bits which might be all the time left over after knitting a pair of socks!
