7 Hats … I didn’t forget!


I’m a lot behind my self-challenge to make a hat a day.  I obviously am not able to do that.  Disappointing, but that’s how it is.

I’m playing catch up, and I have made a ton of hats.  Today I will share with you some of what I’ve made since my last 7 Hats post.

My Sweet Potato 3 is hosting a Cancer Challenge 2015 for Makers to crochet hats for cancer patients and donate them.

The first one I have a made is this cute one – Cancer Challange – designed specifically for this challenge.  The challenge fits right in with my own 7 Hats challenge. 🙂

Made with Caron SS in teal, and LionBrand Homespun in a teal/blue colour.  So pretty and soft!  Vintage button in a mulberry colour.

This hat will be donated!  I will make a listing in my Etsy shop so you can custom order your own soon.  Ravelry project here – please give it a ❤

I also made a bunch of Billie Slouches as tests for my pattern.  All of these will be available in my Etsy Shop.  The Billie Slouch pattern is available in my Ravelry Shop.

I used baby blue & pink yarn and a selection of pastel ribbons and lace.  This one is child size, and would be super adorable on a lucky little girl.

I used cream & a cream/brown nubby yarn.  I laced leather rather than tie on a ribbons for a masculine look.  Finished with an old coat button in the shape of a tusk and two grouse feathers from my husbands hunting trip this fall.

Cream & multicoloured german yarn were fun to pair.  Lots of colours to choose from – so I accented the reds & oranges as I had some great colourful ribbon I could showcase.

My favorite, and I will list it in the shop for a couple of weeks only.  If it doesn’t sell by the end of October – I will keep it for myself!! Love the teal & sock yarn in browns and oranges with a metallic copper strand.  I used some one of a kind ribbons and a great copper button on the hat.  Also I love the golden tassels that I used. So luxurious!

A Pierrot pattern, the pattern was hard to understand where they wanted to decrease – so I made up my own.  I am not a fan of the band, as it has zero stretch.  This one will be staying with me, but I will make some for the shop.  It’s a cute hat.

So that’s 7!!  More to come!  If you liked this post or want to give me encouragement – rate it 5 stars. 🙂
