In the last few days I did this test-knit for Erica of DesigKnit tentatively called Flower Hat.
I made a magic ball with approximately 12 yards of each color, the ball originally included a yellow also, but I didn't need as much yarn as the pattern had estimated, this is probably due to my gauge, but I still love it even without the yellow and not all the orange. I thought about doing specific stripes, but for the sake of the test-knit I wanted to know my yardage.
I used acrylic because worsted weight is really the only weight were I have little to no wool, it's all acrylic or cotton.
I loved knitting the hat, from start to finish it only took me a few days . . . about 10 hours.
