The Yarn I Used…

I made the Metsovo knitted hat pattern 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 full balls of yarn for each color.

However, whichever color 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.

Notes

The slouchy knit hat works up quickly in super bulky yarn, and the simple design makes for a relaxing and enjoyable knit.

Use up your yarn stash with whatever you have in super bulky yarn, acrylic, wool blends, etc for the stripes.
