Recently I received 2 skeins of Premier Yarns Sweet Roll in Cream Pop!!  This is a very soft worsted weight yarn that is self striping in 3 colors, and has 245 yards in each roll….  When I opened the box, I envisioned a sweet little baby blanket that would be perfect in these colors!! I love how it turned out… The weight of the blanket in this yarn is just perfect and I love how the colors worked with  my design!! As you all know, I am a huge fan of self striping yarn… No ends to weave in when the color changes!!!!  I can’t wait to try Sweet Roll yarn in some other color ways for more projects!!  If you love the look of this and great yarn at an awesome price point… You can purchase this from Premier Yarns site and best of all… They gave me a special discount code for you to save an extra 10%!!!

Shaping

To shape your hat… With your hands on the inside of the hat, slightly press in an outward motion with each hand in an opposite direction…  Move around the inside of your hat slightly stretching it… Next place the hat on your head and slightly pull the brim in an outward direction with the middle rows of the brim… Moving around the brim until the size and shape are suitable.  To see a visual tutorial you can watch my Facebook Live Video titled Summer 2016 CAL… Week 2 Chat!  

Adjusting the Brim Size

If you would like to make the brim wider add additional rows after row 17. Then continue with the rest of the pattern.
