Pat's Knitting and Quilting
March 1, 2013
I've been gone awhile, but have continued to knit/spin/sew/weave and have quite a backlog of projects to get up here!!
1st up is my new favorite hat :)
I used just one braid of hand dyed fiber to make this hat by splitting it into color sections and spinning them separately into 3 ply fingering weight yarn. (lots more fiber yarn pictures on Ravelry)
Pattern: Waterville Hat designed by my friend Marcy of Stepping Stone Fiber Creations - (Webs pattern link)
The hardest part of making this hat was deciding color placement - I love fun decisions like that and am thrilled with my choices. Here's a kind of weird view from the top and front.
and last a peek inside at the cashmere lined band
Now I want to make more using all my other hand dyed braids!
