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.
Pretty As A Princess Billie Slouch
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.
Woodland Billie Slouch
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.
Autumn Splendor Billie Slouch
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.
Copper & Teal Billie Slouch
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!
Doctor Who Tardis Slouch
I made one of these for an order, but still available in my shop! Pattern by MistyMakes1
Girly Style Hat
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. 🙂
