The yarn here is Shetland DK dyed with madder and is a lovely orange colour. I am knitting a beanie in the round and it knits up really quickly. The crown of the hat is knitted with 4 needles, this is because the stitches are reduced in number and it becomes difficult to manipulate on a set of circular needles. The intent is to sell the hats and I have also ordered some silver grey DK yarn, which should be arriving in the post next week. The beanies fit tightly on the head and are snug and warm.
