Peri Switzer's Multicolor No-2-Alike
This makes an adult or large
a good way to use up small balls & leftovers.
For a smaller hat, cast on
keeping a multiple of 4 plus 1.
- Using 3 strands of worsted weight acrylic yarn
and leaving a tail 8 to 10 inches long, cast
on 41 st on a 10 1/2 or 11 circular needle (11
will make a little larger hat).
- Join round by knitting 1st st & last st
- Grab tail
and k 2d st, then p 2, k 2 repeating until
the piece is 7 to 8 inches long (or as long
as your hand), knitting the tail in with the
stitches on the 1st row.
- As you go along and need to add more yarns
as the small balls run out, lay the new yarn
in with the working yarn, overlapping for 8
or 10 inches so that for that short distance
you have 4 working strands.
- Dec in pattern to 8 st rem and cut yarns
about 8 inches long.
- Thread this 3-strand tail into a large needle & pull
through the 8 rem st to draw them tightly.
Weave the rest of the tail down into the inside
of the hat.
