“The pattern includes sizing for the whole family, from newborn to adult large – mix and match colors throughout your variations, or use the pattern to incorporate smaller scrap amounts of specialty or hand-dyed yarns. For best results, keep the solid yarn (Color 1) consistent throughout and play with multiple colors or fibers in place of the tonal yarn (Color 2).”
– Jared Flood
The textured fabric of the Admix Hat was designed to combine different yarns of the same weight for interesting color and texture effects. Choose two or more DK weight yarns with contrasting colors, dye processes or fiber contents to create unique fabrics. Here, we combine a sturdy workhorse solid-dyed wool (Arbor) with a tonally-dyed cotton-merino blend (Dapple). The softer color transitions of hand- or tonal- dyed yarns shift and mix gently when interspersed with a solid base in a coordinating or complementary color.
