This is a combination of two yarns I found at the thrift store. The first yarn is a bright yellow, white, and blue sock yarn that had been part of a pattern kit for a lace scarf. The other yarn is a very tightly plied blue tweed sock yarn that I also found at the thrift store. They held the two yarns together to try and tone down the bright yellow and prevent very obvious pooling. The hat is very soft and not itchy at all. I knit the hat with a simple 2 x 2 ribbing for the hem, a plain stockinette stitch body, and quick decreases over a few rounds for the top of the hat.
