Knitted Gnome Hat

You Need:
A set of size 13 double point needles
both worsted and bulky weight, in colors that complement each other.

The entire hat is worked in the round while holding both a strand of worsted and a strand of bulky yarn.  As you run out of one yarn, replace it with another like weight yarn.  The two different colored yarns are what give the hat it’s heathered appearance.  Switching one yarn at a time means that one section kind of blends and fades into the next.
