My friend, Angela and I decide to start another knit-a-long in our local group where you had a month to start/finish as many bulky projects you want. This decision was made because I needed to work on something a little bulkier amid all the fingering or lace weight yarns I've been using in my current projects.
This light pea green color looks like it could be a cotton yarn but it's actually wool, angora, and nylon. One hank gives you about 73 yards to work with. I love how the moss stitch looks with this yarn.
The pattern I chose for the yarn is the Robin's Egg Blue hat which is a pretty popular hat pattern on Ravelry mostly because it's stylish and mostly because it's a free pattern. The pattern was easy to follow and took me about a couple days to finish.
This hat barely took two hanks of this Reynolds Contessa yarn. I love instant gratification projects!
