To keep the chill out

June 19, 2014

So I have said in recent posts that I have finally started knitting with my hand spun and I have yet another semi-FO to show you. This time a simple hat.


I used the Thorpe pattern and my first Hanks of the Hood batt from March. The shifting of the colors proved to be a little tricky and I had to manually mess with them in order to hit all the colors. The ends are not woven in yet nor has it been blocked, in part because I need some help from you my dear readers. I am debating whether I should had some braids and tassels to the ear flaps and either a braided tassel or a pom to the top. So I am turning it over to you all.  Take a moment to comment on what you think.The fate of this wonderful hat rests in your hands, try to use the power for good will ya?

  1. Braids and tassels to the ear flaps! a tassel on top if anything, but it doesn’t need it.

  2. I agree with shellssells

    Braids and tassels at the ear flaps, leave the top alone. Looks fabulous!
