Come Out of Your Shell

More stash-busting, this time in the form of a striped hat.

I only had a really small amount of this yarn left, and I wasn’t sure how far it might stretch. I started off thinking this would be an adult hat, but about half way through I realized that there wasn’t going to be enough yarn. So I adjusted the pattern as I went and made it into a hat for a bigger baby/smaller child. The ribbed edge is very stretchy, so it can probably fit a variety of sizes. It’s shown here on the model I use for newborn hats but would definitely stretch to fit a larger head if desired.

I was able to retain some of the slouchiness of the original pattern and used up almost the entire skein – I only have a couple yards left, which is really cutting it close. The brief for this HPKCHC challenge (Herbology) was to make something that will help you overcome your shyness or timidity. I thought that this self-striping yarn fit since it is a pretty bold pattern.

As this hat is for a baby or child, I’m looking for a home for it! If you know a kid you think might like it, let me know and I’ll send it your way.
