I'm currently attempting to make my way through the many skeins of yarn that I have collected over the last decade or so. And so I present my recently completed version of the Montreal Tuque from Knitting Classic Style by Veronik Avery. I made it with three colors of a soft, smooth, sturdy merino wool called Emmanuella from Goddess Yarns that have been in my stash for quite some time. This hat is super-easy to knit, the style seems to suit just about everyone, and because it's a 3-by-1 rib, there's a lot of flexibility in the sizing. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a simple, satisfying project that can easily be made with an assortment of stash leftovers--or newly purchased yarn, of course. It all depends on what phase you are in, in your knitting life--the building-up phase or the working-through phase.
