Bird’s Eye View of KC Hat

The four yarns used to knit this hat are all natural. No dyes were used. The dark cable is of Running Moon Farm’s colored GCNI, the cream, from one of their GCNs too, the “waffley” rectangle is a blend created from that dark GCNI and some tawny alpaca – his name was Reggie. The seed stitch triangles as well as the ribbing, was knit from blend of the cream GCN and Reggie. Just shy of 4oz of fiber was needed for this hat. I spun little 100 yd worsted weight hanks on the Fricke as I went along.

The Hat at the Dance

The famous hat, designed by Kerry Crone, made from a variety of handspun yarns, was finally finished on the way to the contra dance last night. I was temped to add a bunch of I-Cord oozing out of the top, but figured, let us see how it looks.

This is Patty in The Hat. After a long night of contra dancing, she was happy to model. It’s a nice big squashy hat, and would be fabulous in Minnesota in the middle of a snowstorm. But, in Casselberry (near Orlando) Florida, in an un-airconditioned hall…well.
