One recent Saturday morning I pulled together this little sack of equal toned remnants with the printed pattern I queued years ago. Ravelry says almost 18,000 of these have already been knit - time to get to it!
As a pattern designed to use up remnant yarn, the necessary quantity of contrast colour yarn is given in weight rather than "balls" which made it easy to switch from the self striping Noro of the pattern to equal toned, separate remnants...
I wanted something a bit softer looking than the original snug design so...
My slouchier fit lets the "square" hang down the back rather than sitting atop the head all but hidden from sight of my tallest friends...
- Lengthened the ribbed section 'round the bottom
- Added another round of black between each coloured stripe.
