The Melted Macaroon Hat is a great way to use small amounts of fingering weight yarn. You just need 25 grams each of three colors to create your own Melted Macaroon Hat! We worked with Oink Pigments to come up with some fun color combinations in their Targhee Pigtails (90% Targhee wool, 10% nylon; 25 grams) for these kits. The pattern is FREE with the kit.
The colorwork is done with slipped stitches, so you will only ever work with one color at a time.
The hat comes in two styles - beanie and slouch. The only difference to the pattern is the length (or how “tall” the hat is).
The hat is written for a 19” circumference. (Because the stitch repeats in each round are divisible by four, you should be able to adjust the size by casting on 4 less stitches for a smaller size or 4 more stitches for a larger size.)
- 3 colors of fingering weight yarn - approximately 25 grams of each
