Today’s Project: Funky Hat
Size: fits my head
Pattern By: Sherry Etheridge
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!
