We are all creative people by nature, so it’s inevitable that when we are working with our hands we end up putting our own creative spin on things. When Kirsten Holloway Designs asked if I would like to participate in the Designer Remix Event, I didn’t even hesitate to get involved ! 12 designers have gotten together to remix a pattern from each others designs. We each picked a pattern we liked, added our own little twist to it, and each week we are sharing this twist with you! For a complete list of participating Designers, check out the list HERE.
Julie originally designed this pattern using 2 strands of Caron Simply Soft held together. I chose to use this pretty Loops and Threads Barcelona single strand instead. I was able to match gauge without issue.
First, follow the pattern from Rounds 1- 14 (or until your hat measures 7″ tall).
Then, skip to Round 18. I found the hat to be snug enough after this Round. If you would like a snugger fitting band, continue with Rounds 19 and 20.
Lastly, follow the Border instructions for Rounds 1-3.
TIP!!! Want to add a simple loop to easily hang your hat to dry after coming in from the snow? Check out my Winter Accessories Hacks HERE!
Fasten off, weave in ends, and make an adorable pompom for on top!
What do you think? Are you more of a slouch person? Or a beanie person? I love to have a decent mix of both in my wardrobe so I can mix and match depending on my mood.
