This however is not one of them. The hat looks pretty good in this photo but from most angles I look like I am wearing a puffy pastery chef hat. It is because I used a yarn that was too thick and made for a stiff fabric. Next time I would use either a thinner yarn or a softer yarn to avoid that problem.
I love this hat but it is too small for me. I’ve ripped the project with the intent of going back someday to reknit it in a bigger size.
The Trinity hat however was too large. I’ve since frogged it and reused it in a different hat. If I did this one again I would knit some elastic into the brim.
This is one of the two patterns that I knit from “Boutique Knits”. It is one of my favorite hats.
The Princess Leia bun hat proved to be quite popular at last years departmental holiday party as a white elephant gift.
My second hat from “Boutique Knits” and the project I reused the yarn from the Trinity hat with. Another one of my favorites that gets worn a lot. The fabric created from a comination of the yarn and stitch makes a wonderfully cosy hat.
This hat get a lot of everyday wear as well. The cheery yellow yarn is a nice pop of color on a cold gray day.
A bit snug on me but I love the way the top of this hat looks.
The white elephant gift that I knit for this years departmental holiday party. It also proved to be quite popular.
A hat that I made as a gift for a Stars fan. I tried to dye the yarn but I couldn’t find the stuff I usually use. The color didn’t really take but I may redye the hat for her at a later time.
