My Winter hat project
(Syracuse, New York)
You can see the various colors and blends of yarn
I blended Norspun gray and off white along with some blended fur yarn of gray, brown and dark gray. I did a band and switched colors mid looming and added a thin gray yarn as an added color and texture. Then for extra insulation as we had chilling winds this season, I knitted the hat twice as long as needed and then doubled it inside. Though doing three rows of loops might have been faster I liked the feel and fit. As I got to the section that would be the top of the hat I added the fuzzy furlike yarn in the brown, gray and dark gray to the top and also in a pom pom for the top. This is a thicker yarn than I usually find so thought it would make a great hat.
