As my collection is called Frugal Knitting, I feel the obligation to explain to you how I obtained these yarns! The yarn from this hat is from the remnants of a set of hat and mittens I designed for Knitpicks Independent Designer Program (IDP for short), and remnants of a failed attempt at another design (yep, this happens more than I would like, and does contribute to my leftovers).
I had 4 balls left of the Prairie Heather and 2 balls left of the Meringue Heather. This hat uses 1 ball of each color, but I do believe I did a great work out of my leftovers! I still have 3 balls of the Prairie Heather color and 1 of the Meringue Heather, but I love the yarn so much it should not be a problem to find a way to use them!
You can now buy the Piccolo pattern as part of the Frugal Knitting collection:
