Funky Reversible Hat

29 Apr

Funky Hat
Today’s Project: Funky Hat
Size: fits my head
Pattern By: Sherry Etheridge
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic scraps, RHSS Amethyst
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I put my big ball of tied together yarn scraps to good use and made myself a funky hat!! After I looked at it I thought it kind of reminded me of the African Bamileke Ashente Hat that ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons wears. I crocheted with the yarn ends away from me, and about halfway through it dawned on me that doing that made the funky side the wrong side of the piece. I ended up with a reversible hat. I wish I could say I’d planned to do that, but it was just a happy accident. I can wear the funky side out when I’m feeling whimsical and the “plain” side out when I’m not. Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t…

All in all I’m happy with how it turned out. I think I’ll make a scarf to match it now. The hat took about half the ball of yarn. I made the hat a little smaller than I usually do but it still fits me so that’s ok!

      Some people would call my way of thinking “quirky”. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    Nice! then we don’t have to worry about weaving in ends on colour changes! Great idea!

      Indeed! Someone has already joked to me that I forgot to weave in my ends. πŸ˜€
