After working on so many chunky projects, it felt really weird to switch gears, (and needles) and go back to fingering weight.
It took a little more time, but it was worth it. For the Teen Hat category, I give you – Scandinavian Sugarskulls!
I had some Barn Cat gradient kicking around in the stash (dye up to make some socks), and I thought it would be perfect for the background of the hat.
It’s suppose to go from grey, to grey-teal, to turquoise, to duck egg green, but as you can see, the transition from grey-teal to turquoise isn’t quite as smooth as I would like. But for the purposes of this hat, I can live with it.
The pompom isn’t quite a big as I would like either, but this is the biggest size pompom maker I have… so again, I’ll live with it.
But despite it’s flaws, it’s a pretty cool looking hat, and after the fair, it will be tucked away for Miss Paisley.
