For this variation, I used 96 g of hand dyed KnitPicks Palette yarn and size 4 knitting needles. I did NOT make the rounded point at the end, I just followed the standard pattern until I was ready to bind off (loosely) all the way.
I dyed this 100g skein of KnitPicks bare fingering Peruvian highland wool with a Tulip Tie Dye Kit. I made the color repeats really short, as you can see there are 5 repeats of a 5 color rainbow below.
I handpainted the yarn following the same techniques I used for the cotton yarn in the following video tutorial. (In fact, I dyed these the same day!)
