Inspiration Monday: Knitted Winter Hats
Hosted by Trish from Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity
It's June and 85 degrees outside so lets talk knit hats! Over the winter, I went through my yarn stash, sorting out bits and bobs. What pattern to knit with this yarn, what does this yarn want to be. Lots of decisions. I had been saving leftovers for hat projects. Since I plan on being tropical in 2017, now is the time to knit and wear wool hats.
This first one is made from merino wool, so it's nice and squishy. The pattern is called Tears of Bronze, so mine is Tears of Aqua Bronze. (Ravelry link to my project page).
This should be good for windy, cold days in January.
This second one is also made from wool. The burgundy yarn is leftover from a sweater and the blue from another hat I gave away. This pattern is also free and called Escargot. Mine is called the same. (Link to my Ravelry project page.)
Not as squishy or warm, but it will work for early fall, or late winter. Escargot came from a free online knitting publication called Knitty. If you decide to start knitting or are curious I urge you to check Knitty out.
