For the Mid-Mitten Shop Hop this year I designed two millend hats that use two simple color techniques; striping and slip-stitches. For added interest I cast-on with the Channel Island Cast-on. If you know how to do a long-tail cast-on you should have no trouble picking up the Channel Island. The technique gives you a picot edge that is great to use with knit 1, purl 1 ribbing.
|L: Multi Stripe Hat R: Dashes Hat|
For each hat you will need a skein of Classic Elite Lush and a single Stonehedge Fiber Mill millend. The millend will make several hats, but you will need a new skein of Lush for each hat you do, unless like me you make a bunch of them, in which case you will eventually be able to put all your Lush scraps together into another hat. (!!!)
The pattern is $5 and includes written instructions, a chart for the Dashes Hat, and the instructions for the Channel Island Cast-on.
