Will you choose adventure this summer? It’s time to gather your supplies for our Choose Your Own Adventure Hat KAL!

Choose Your Own Adventure - Hat KAL Cast on July 5th,  2016 on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

You’ll need:

120-250 yds of DK or light worsted weight yarn – this will depend on what type of hat you choose to make. We’ll be aiming for a gauge of 5 sts per inch, in stockinette in the round. On July 5th we’ll have tips and tutorials on how to swatch in the round!

(There’s colorwork, cables, and stripes to choose from. A simple hat with an all over texture might only use 120 yds of one color, but if you’d like to do colorwork  you’re going to need more yardage and in all the colors you might want to use! Think about what kinds of colors and textures you might like and plan accordingly. And don’t worry about having too much yarn. You can always take off on another adventure with what’s left!)

 Needles (Size US 7/4.5mm recommended) –  double points ,  a 16″ circular2 circulars, or magic loop, however you normally would knit a hat.

Choose Your Own Adventure - Hat KAL Cast on July 5th,  2016 on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

I’ll be making a striped hat in Valley Yarns Sunderland, I prefer double pointed needles for the whole sh’bang. I’m going to need a stitch marker to denote the beginning of the round, and I plan to top it off with a tassel. So, there I am all set and ready for July 5th when we’ll swatch for gauge!

Join us for the Choose Your Own Adventure – Hat KAL here on the WEBS Blog in July!

One pattern. Hundreds of possibilities. Cast on July 5th.

    I’m off next week for the Adirondack Mountains and I won’t have internet, unless I go into town. But even though it’s a vacation the start of this KAL is the day before my Mom’s Memorial. Somehow I’m going to do it! I think it’ll be my own ray of sunshine to hold onto- it sounds so fun, and trying to hook up with internet will make it even a more fun challenge! Thanks. Packing all the supplies (besides my TGV Shawl I doing).

    Got my yarn- I have lots of Patons leftover from making glove-mittens and mittens for Christmas last year, hoping the worsted is light enough, but I’ll make do. Got some #7 double pointed needles today and the rest I had around. All is set aside to be packed for my trip this week. Sounds so fun, looking forward to it! Hoping to learn some fair-isle or colorwork- areas of mystery to me. Also I included the KAL in my blog as a heads-up to my readers, with two other KALS I found- http://lovelyyarnescapes.blogspot.com/2016/06/friday-fantasy-knits-kals-coming-up.html
