This is a great idea for using up novelty yarn - pair it with a super bulky/super chunky yarn and knit a hat! Besides butterfly yarn I'm sure you could use eyelash yarn or other textured yarn as long as it was very light weight. Not sure if I could actually do this in 2 hours but it sure would work up quickly.

Just knitted this one up with Black chunky wool and my multi colored butterfly yarn and it came out beautifully. Thanks for the idea. I was wondering what to do with the butterfly yarn I had and this hat came out super cute. Give this 5 stars

That sounds gorgeous! One of my favorite things to do is to combine heavier and lighter weight yarn to come up with my own unique look. As a variation you could make the border with the combined yarn and then finish with only the chunky yarn. Of course, the best part is that it works up quickly with large needles - another one-evening project to try out on a cold winter's night.
