350

WordPress tells me that this is my 350th blog post, which probably calls for deep and insightful thoughts on fiber and making and blogging, but I have none.

What I do have is hats.


My go-to hat pattern for present production is this one. I’ve made a lot of them – they are great for single skeins of handspun.

Merino and silk
Yak and shetland

It is a very simple pattern with a little band of twisted stitch cables near the start to keep it interesting. It takes only one or two evenings for each. I’m using heavier yarns for these, or holding the yarn doubled (the red one) so they are sturdy and warm.

This particular batch is destined for my co-workers as holiday gifts.
