Orange Barley Hat

I think that I just might have the barley hats out of my system. I love how bright and cheery this one is. My Daughter really turned up her nose at the thought of me adding orange to the Unicorn Farts yarn but she fell in love with it before I had finished knitting the cuff. She requested an orange Pom Pom. You wont be able to miss that bright hat bouncing around on a gloomy, cloudy, gray winter day.

Barley Hat

I am so pleased with the way this Barley Hat turned out. I held two strands of my hand dyed yarns together to create this look. I have enough yarn left to make two more hats. I want to dye some orange yarn to pair with the colorful yarn and maybe gray or black for the third hat
