We love making hats. They can be a good way to use up oddments or smaller amounts of spun yarn. They can encourage us to think creatively and then we can always think about style and colour. This week we had some really good hats.
Alexis had some flat topped knitted hats which she had made from her own dyed and spun wool. Lovely colours and a different sort of design for a hat which was a bit more stylish than a beret or beanie. The felt trims were a nice addition but the colours! The lavender one had such a lovely mix of other colours in it which were picking up the light.
Cathy made a fluffy , puffy child’s beanie from the acrylic yarn leftovers he had. Some acrylic art yarn gives an interesting effect. She mixed them, with some fawn linen yarn . Making a pompom from acrylic , fluffy yarn wasn’t so easy.
Christine had made 3 green hats from her spun wool. It’s a lovely green and the pastel buttons just go so nicely on these hats to break the colour and then add a cheerful visual lift.
