I knitted a new hat for my husband. I noticed that the last one I had made him left marks on his head (he shaves his head, and although the hat wasn't tight, the ribbing left imprints), so I wanted a hat that was smooth on the inside. I also wanted to use some of my hand spun yarn for him. I dyed the green to match his eyes and I was surprised when it did! My dyeing is pretty haphazard.
I added this as a free pattern on Ravelry too. If you are not a member of Ravelry you can download the PDF here.
When I was writing the pattern my nephew came over and I explained to him that I had dyed the wool fibre-
Spun the yarn-
Designed a pattern-
And knit the hat-
He looked at me, showed me his orange acrylic hat and told me that I could just buy a hat for $4!
This is wool that I dyed this week - the above photo of the dye pot is this fibre steaming.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥
