The Yarn I Used…

I made the Metsovo hat using 2 skeins of super bulky yarn – one in light grey and one in white – I used Yarn Art Alpine Alpaca in white 433 and grey in Yarn Art Alpine 334.

This was knit up quite quickly, scrap yarns can be used, as you do not need a full ball for each colour.

However, whichever colour you make the pom in will need to have more yarn available.

Any super bulky weight yarn 06 will be okay to use for this pattern.
