I have been working on a new “pillbox” type of hat. I got this great lattice yarn and wanted to use to add some interest to the hat. I got this yarn at Value Village, a big chain second hand store. They had over 100 bags of 4 skeins each for $3.99. It was all new with the labels on them. the black/grey is what I used on the wonky hat wonky hat and the green/purple/orange is what I used for this one.
This kind of hat is made in 2 pieces.
I used a nice orange wool that isn’t to bright for the base then I added the lattice yarn. It worked much better when the wool and the lattice were wet.
After the usual rubbing and rolling and whatnot they are done.
Checking the fit before sewing them together is important, can you guess ow I know? LOL
And here is the finished hat. The top is sewn to the bottom.
This hat works inside out too. It would need steam ironing to make the top seam fold properly.
