Quirky Rainbow Hat
"This is a fun, colorful hat to knit up some of that scrap yarn that's been storing up! All you need are enough scraps for a hat, circular needles in a size suited to your yarn, a measuring tape, and a tapestry needle to weave in ends. My mom (my biggest fan, of course) says I have a tendency to make her appreciate things that wouldn't normally appeal to her aesthetic preferences. This hat was one of those things, with all its disjointed stripes and mismatched colors. It's not for everyone, but I have my quirks! What about you? This is a tutorial with general instructions for making a hat like the one pictured.
This hat is meant to be made using scrap yarns. Your gauge will depend on the yarns and needle size you choose, but I have included my gauge as a guideline for the yarns and needle size I used. Instructions also include the number of stitches I cast on for my own hat. Read all the instructions through first so you are confident you have the skills to complete this project and will enjoy knitting it up! This is a very basic, quick knit that can be adapted to any size very easily. I hope it encourages you to use up some of your own scraps!"
