Testing 123 , Kauni Yarns

I have never made anything from this yarn, until I decided to design a hat with it.  I got it at Stitches West, and there was a lot of hovering around the skeins.   Kauni is one of the most excellent yarns I have seen. I just like the texture of it, how easy it fuses when you want to join. It is light. I just made a Fair Isle hat,(which will be published soon), with a mere 50 grams of the stuff. Yes you heard me right, you got 150 grams of Kauni in a variegated version and a Solid and you can make 5 wool hats. The hat is light like a feather.

So what else could I do, retest the pattern by knitting the opposites now and see what a wonderful combination is going to be.  I have to say I am in love with this yarn. In my opinion it is a good investment. Stay tuned to the pattern next week.  Thanks for stopping by!
