Two weeks ago, I showed you my project in progress...
...and I said that if it worked out, I'd post it "next week". But "next week" came, and I hadn't gotten much more completed.
Sorry about that.
That was last week. This week, however, I did manage to finish it...
It's another Santa hat, this one more of a sketch, really...
It's been a few years since I saw someone wearing something like this. I saw it and decided that I just had to have one. And I could make it myself.
I'm not going to post a "pattern", but I'll tell you how I did it.
First, I took a 6 ft length of wire (that I got at Dollar Tree). I curled the ends (no sharp edges!). Then I "knit" (read: crocheted) an I-cord over the length of it, tying the yarn ends around the curled wire ends.
Then I picked up and knit around 2/3rds to 3/4ths of the bottom spiral. I cast on a few more stitches after that, joined in the round, and knit a 2 by 2 ribbing for about 2 inches.
I attached a "poof" to the top. (A pom-pom would work as well.) And that's it.
What do you think? (I think I like the headband better, but I'm glad I made this attempt.)
