Thank you Jen. I used Patons SWS in Natural Plum. It is a pretty color but you have to buy extra skeins so that you can keep the striping in sequence. I bought 5 skeins but got lucky and only had to dip into the 4th skein for one color. But on the other two skeins I had to cut and paste basically. Hopefully the hat won't need as many skeins.
