A Hat to Match
Do you recall the Patchwork Pastel Sweater I made for Puzzle? Click here to view it.
Well, I’m working on a hat to match, and I’m just about done with it. I’ve made it in a similar manner to the way I made her sweater. First, I made strips:
I made nine of them. Then, I sewed them all together:
All that I have to do now is to figure out what to do with the hole in the top, and to figure out how to bind off the bottom of the hat. I was thinking of preserving the scalloped look, but you know something? You can’t even tell it’s scalloped once it gets on my head. So I may bind it in a few rows of ribbing, not a lot. Lastly, I must weave in the zillions of ends that are on the inside of the hat. It will be a very warm hat, and it is 100% merino wool. Puzzle and I will be twins!
