The Mash It Up pattern was designed by Babs Ausherman. Our samples were knit in Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply in a variety of colorways.
Fingering weight yarn is my favorite weight to work with, and over the past few years I have ended up with quite a collection of partial skeins. I was playing with them one day and thought that knitting a hat with two strands, slowly changing colors, would be a fun way to use some of them up. Yummy 2-Ply held double makes such a wonderfully squishy fabric that I was instantly hooked, and have already knit 6 of these hats! The pattern is simple, but the opportunity to play with colors is endless… Pull out your bag of odds and ends, find 6 (or more, or fewer) colors you like together, and cast on!
