    I’m not good with Fdc so could you tell me how long to make the chain? Thank you.

    Jesse, will this hat, made in stripes as written, take a whole skein of each color? And, if made in only one color, about how many yards do you think I’d need? Love this!

      It didn’t use the whole skein of each color. You would probably need 2 skeins if you made it in one color.
