There are several different yarns that you use. I just started one using Limbo Mexico to go with my favorite jacket. Here is what I have done so far.

I’ll take pictures as I go along to help you understand my directions. And I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Here are some yarns of similar weight that will also work with this pattern. I have also made this hat using much lighter weight yarn.

    Hello!

    I just wanted to let you know that I am going to try your hat out. I started a yarn club a few months ago on my site. I have a yarn company based in Maryland (even slower MD…). I would rather color the yarn than knit with it but I am going to make an effort… hee hee.
    Have a good New Year.

    Hi — thanks for this pattern! I just made the hat this past weekend and it came out awesome! Well the color I used may be a bit funky for some tastes, but they’re definitely a fun combination!

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the pattern. I’m just finishing my first entrelac piece of knitting – a scarf of course. This hat sounds good for my next knitting adventure.

    I’d have liked the pattern even more if there had been a picture of the finished hat, as I like to see what I’m going to get in the end.
