This hat falls into a category of really simple knits. Just knit to relax! I love it! This project let me rest from my big lace work.
For this project I used:
Circular needles US 4 - 3.5 mm and 1 set of sock square needles US 5 - 3.75 mm. It turns out that square needle sizing is always one size thinner than they are marked.
0.5 skein of Chroma Fingering from Knit Picks. My color was 106 Misty Morn.
I like this yarn very much for 2 important reasons:
1) it is the softest wool considering that it is not merino;
2) color transitions are impressive and perfect for a hat or pair of socks.
