I made this hat for my mother for her birthday, which is next week. Hoping she doesn’t check my blog… She knows about it, though, because I asked her about a month ago if she wanted a new hat, and I had her measure her head. Hopefully she’s forgotten all about it by now 🙂
The tassel thingies are crocheted, and the swirly pattern is needle felted on (because I suck so hard at free hand embroidery). Sadly the needle feelting didn’t really stick as much as I thought it would – you can just peel it off if you want to – so I stitched over the pattern with a few strands of light purple embroidery floss. Hopefully it’ll hold 🙂 I planned to make a matching pair of wristwarmers, but I’ll have to see if I have time before she comes to visit next Wednesday. They won’t be a Ravellenic project, so I’ll try to do some other stuff first. Only one day left of the Games!
