striking hat

Another hat for my ever growing gift pile. I think I am on a futile search for the perfect hat. At the start of making a hat the possibilities are endless and I can imagine a wonderful, brilliant hat. But the image is fuzzy – if I knew exactly what the perfect hat looked like then I could just make it. and as the hat grows in size it also seems to grow further and futher from that perfect yet fuzzy vision. Perhaps the perfect hat design doesn’t exist. perhaps I’m just very fussy. and fuzzy (minded).

This hat was made from the bottom up – no ribbed band this time – I started with foundation hdc to create a ring to fit around my head and then just continued up in the hdc knit stitch explained in an earlier post, switching between grey and bright yellow.
