Orange Crush Hat

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love the way the carrying thread sparked up the hat and took it out of the realm of ordinary. It was a bit large when I got finished with it, so I had to felt it a little when I got finished. It's very warm! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you like 'em, don't be afraid to combine bold colors. In a hat, they won't overwhelm. Okay, maybe a little bit! I get lots of comments when i wear it.

What you will need

  • Worsted weight wool yarn (brand unknown); Frog Tree alpaca (orange & sage)
  • multi-colored carrying thread; double-pointed knitting needles #5 and #7.
