Yet another watch cap, yet again spun from Frabjous Fibers BFL. This colour is called deep space.
For this and the similar hats I did recently, I tore the rovings into thin strips before spinning. This made the colour repeat frequently and prevented long sections of colour which I feared would pool unpleasantly.

This project was part of a challenge to take eleven separate given colours and blend them into one repeatable yarn.
I improvised the hat pattern. I had to frog the crown and redo it with less length so I wouldn't run out of yarn. This is my first hat with lots of increases at the crown.

I spun a fortieth and forty-first skein and knit them into my seventh hat.
Strictly speaking, I didn't really do skeins as such.
I divided two braids of Frabjous Fibers BFL in redwood forest, separating the brown sections from the teal sections. Each brown section was a different brown.
I spun up each section into a little ball of yarn and knit directly into the hat. Didn't even stop to set the twist. The hat had subtle bands of colour because of the different browns. I put a touch of teal at the brim for fun.
