Ever since I made the first Epic hat, in beiges, I had been hoping for a chance to make one in purples. I finally got the call for one as a Christmas present, for a four year old girl. Super excited!
I started with going through my stash. I plucked out anything in pure white, lilac, lavender, purple and plum. I didn't have as much as I had hoped. So, I headed off to Michaels' to stock up. It takes a lot of yarn to make these hats--not actually for the individual hat (less than 200gr), but a large variety is needed, though only a few yards for each colour (at the start of the hat, about 60" per row, or just under 2 yards, but I usually do more than one row of a yarn). Each of these hats has been a financial loss, though each one has enriched my stash tremendously, LOL!!
Yarn In: 16 153gr
Yarn Out: 122gr + 16 533gr = 16 655gr
Balance: 502gr more sent OUT than IN
Costs: $378.91/365 days = $1.04/day
