Satin Doll - Baby Hat in Sateen


Sateen is a soft, silky acrylic that has the look and feel of bamboo. Available in 36 solids and 8 multis, there is a virtual rainbow of colors to choose from. Each 100 gram skein contains a generous 300 yards and it works up beautifully in sport gauge.

While swatching with Sateen, it became quite evident that a simple hat in a variety of sizes was a must. This would work beautifully for a baby hat as well as a chemo hat. The softness of the yarn would feel lovely against even very sensitive skin. It would be easy to get 2-3 hats out of 1 skein.  The 14" size only used 1/3 of my skein.
