Chullo Cast On

I’ve been slowly planning a multi-color hat for my Dad. I knew that I wanted to use Cascade Eco, but didn’t know how I could collect as many different skeins as colors that I wanted to use.

Of course, the solution was to purchase a natural color and dye it!

There was still some Kool-aid from when I dyed my first handspun, so I only had to pick up a few extra flavors. I used Knitty’s article as a guide. I loved the look of the ice blue raspberry lemonade and was glad when I found some at my local grocery.

Ice blue raspberry lemonade, black cherry, peach mango, grape, lemon lime.

These will work great for the project. I think I also need a sixth color, but haven’t found a good choice with enough contrast. I may use white as the last color.
