WINTER IS COMING!


No matter how many hats I have for winter, every autumn I feel the need for a BRAND NEW HAT for the coming winter, and this year it is no different. There is always room for another warm hat to be added to my collection of hats. Don't you agree?

Yarn Talk


For this my first crochet hat for winter I am using King Cole RIOT Chunky, which I bought a couple of weeks ago.  A wool mix yarn 30% Wool and 70% Acrylic with a splash of colourful multi-tonal shades and I chose the purple mix, called Rhinestone, closest to my favourite colour.  The Riot Chunky yarn comes in 100g balls so you only need one (1) ball to make this winter hat. As you can see in the photo the gradual colour change in the yarn has made the hat look as though I changed colour in every round, I just love this yarn! 



You can substitute the yarn if you wish, just remember to check the YARNSUB website, to get the best match.

New Winter Hat


AMETHYST Winter Hat is the name of my new design for winter 2017 the colours remind me of my favourite gemstone of the same name, which I always wear around my neck.  This chunky yarn crochet hat is going to be lovely and warm, the yarn label recommends 6mm hook, however, I have used 5mm hook for a denser fabric and I have also included a cotton lining to prevent any possible itchiness from the wool blend yarn, as well as making the hat warmer. Of course, the cotton lining is optional you can make and wear the hat as is, I just prefer it with a lining.
