Off my needles

Hat #13 is done. This is the last of the pink/orange ombre skein and I didn’t like how the end of the skein worked up as much as I liked the other two from it. Maybe the color changes in this yarn are just too long for hats? But they are soft!

  • Pattern – Classic Cuff Hat found free on Ravelry
  • Needle sizes – 5 for the ribbed cuff, 7 for the rest of the hat
  • Yarn – LionBrand Mandala Ombre
  • Cast on 80, knit ribbing for 3.5 inches, started crown decreases when hat was 8 inches.


  1. I see what you mean about the yarn. I love the color combo but was really surprised that it was the same yarn as the hats that registered as pink with orange highlights. This one reads orange and I have to look for the pink. It would still thrill the granddaughters so I know it will be a hit, just a very different hit.
