About the Yarn

King Cole Merino Blend DK

  • 100% Pure, New Superwash Wool
  • DK Weight Yarn [3]
  • 49 Shades
  • 1.76 oz (50 g) and 115 yds (104 m)

This 100% Merino Blend Yarn is available in 49 different colors. It is a superwash wool, which means you can wash your finished projects in the washing machine, in warm water and on a gentle cycle.

The yarn works up nicely and it did not fluff or pill as I worked with it. My finished stitches retained their stitch definition and shape perfectly.

As many of you know, I have in the past mentioned I have a sensitivity to most wools so I was a bit apprehensive to try this one. I am happy to report that my hands did not suffer any redness, dryness or itchiness. They did feel warm while I was working with the yarn, but not unpleasantly so. Overall, I am very pleased with the Merino Blend DK Yarn and I think it made for a lovely finished hat.

I would happily use this yarn again on a future design. I love that there are so many pretty colors available!

Notes

  • Stitch multiple: 2 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • Crochet stitch pattern : Crossed Double Crochet Variation
  • The initial ch-3 does not count as a stitch.
  • The initial ch-2 does not count as a stitch.
  • The initial ch-1 does not count as a stitch.
  • The sl st does not count as a stitch.
  • Make your sl st tightly.
  • You may customize the hat height by working the repeat as many, or as few, times as you wish. Every 2 rounds you add with the stitch pattern, will add approximately 0.75 inch of height to the hat. 
  • If you would like to add a little bit more height to the hat, work an additional round (or two) of sc in the back loop only. 
  • I use an invisible join to finish off my final round of stitches, you may substitute a sl st to join if you prefer.

  1. Hi Dianne, I purchased those from Unwrapped Yarn on Etsy but it looks like she closed her shop. I think I am going to try this shop when I run out of the one’s I have. https://www.awin1.com/cread.php?awinmid=6939&awinaffid=266585&platform=dl&ued=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.etsy.com%2Fca%2Flisting%2F1075520925%2Fcustom-no-sew-personalized-faux-leather%3Fclick_key%3Dffba6ce0c46c8d520e58bc377ba9c86fd6d9c508%253A1075520925%26click_sum%3Df89c374a%26ref%3Dshop_home_recs_2%26crt%3D1%26sts%3D1

    You can also search on Etsy for other options using these search words: “Chicago screws personalized tags”. Hope this helps! Rhondda

  2. Where can I buy those leather tags that are attached to the bottom of your hats? I’d love a few for my creations. –
