The snow can fly now
I finished Fireman's hat and gave it to him on Thanksgiving. See how nicely he posed for the blog?
I'm thinking of finding a styrofoam head to model for the blog for me. Grace told me she found one for 3 dollars at a beauty supply store.......
The Hat: HJS Studio Double Hat pattern. Google that, please. I liked the idea of the pattern because I wanted to use warm Alpaca on the outside, (berroco) and soft merino on the inside (Zara). No itch. Lots a warmth.
Simple to make. I did use two yarns of slightly different gauge but it didn't seem to matter. You basically knit a hat, go back to the cast on edge and pick up the same number of stitches and knit the hat again. It looks like you are knitting for a Conehead in the process. Then you just tuck the one hat inside the other.
Thankful for all of you for coming to irisheyes. Thankful for all who blog as well. I enjoy reading your blogs so much.
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
