Stashbusting hat

Stashbusting hat

Stashbusting hat on my model, Amber

My first finished object of 2012!

This was a lot of fun to knit, very quick and easy.   I think it turned out great – I love the final look of the hat.

I will probably knit more of these, and I may even write up the pattern (eventually).

I used Cascade 220 in various colours for this project.  In order to use smaller-sized scraps of yarn without having a lot of ends to weave in, I spit spliced the ends of each colour with the new one.  I didn’t worry about starting a new colour at the beginning of a round, I just introduced each new colour when I ran out of yarn or felt like the stripe was big enough.  I used a broken rib stitch pattern which was very forgiving with all of my random switching of the colours.
