Last week I introduced you to the yarn for a new hat design that I’m working on in collaboration with Scheepjes and their lovely premium acrylic yarn, Colour Crafter.
This week I thought I’d share my work in progress.
You can see that I’m using the Navajo Plying method I showed you in my video last week for this project, making my hat lovely and chunky.
I’m using the neon pink for the edging and a gorgeous plump pom pom:
The pink is SO bright, I can’t get enough of it.
I could never figure out how to use the pom pom makers in the past, but now I have a handle on it I’ll never go back to cardboard circles ever again. This one was gifted to me by my Fibre Share partner, but you can find them at Wool Warehouse* or most local craft stores stock them too.
If you haven’t organised the yarn already, head to Wool Warehouse* or Deramores* (globally), or from any of the Benelux retailers. You’ll need a ball of Hilversum and either Eelde or Zwolle (or both if you want to make two hats like I have).
Next week: The reveal!
