Hat 107

Hat 107 is made with some Vanna's Choice Yarn in Terracotta and some fuzzy colorful yarn I had.  I made the hat in the terracotta with a HDC stitch first then went back with the fuzzy yarn and added it to the loops on the outside of the hat.  I was worried the fuzzy yarn would be too itchy on the inside and I like the way it poofs out a bit extra than if I just changed yarn during the hat.

Hat 106

So here is one of my favorite hats I've made this year. I tend to buy a lot of Caron Simply Soft yarn and I love all their colors, so I usually have a lot of scraps of different colors.  This hat was to use up some of those scraps. 

The pattern for this was Lion Brand's Easy Sideways Hat with a little extra twist.  I will probably do similar hats in the future since I love how this turned out.

Hat 105

Hat 105 is made with Vanna's Choice Yarn in Olive and some light green poofy yarn I had.  Simple hat with a nice pretty brim.

Hat 104

For Hat 104 I used the Caron Yarnspiration's pattern Tri-color Cloche, but instead used just 2 colors.   Last Christmas I was part of a Secret Santa and he sent me some Vanna's Choice yarn in Sea Spray Mist which I paired with a orange Vanna's Choice yarn.  I couldn't think of a 3rd color and liked how this looked with just the 2 so kept it that way all the way through.  It is a bit holey but I don't think it's too bad and I made it nice and big so it should be comfy and not too hot.

Hat 103

So here is ANOTHER hat using some Impeccable Yarn from Michaels in Fresh Lilac.  I go a little yarn crazy anytime I take a trip to the mainland and buy a bunch from them.  I love their colors and prices, I just wish we had one here in Hawaii, but maybe it's a good thing we don't or I'd be broke.  Anyway, a simple pretty hat done with HDC stitch.  This year is the year of stripes and simplicity!

Hat 102

Finally got around to taking some pictures!  Here is hat 102! When in the mainland I picked up some Loops and Threads Country Loom yarn in the Wild West color.  I found some Vanna's Choice Terracotta Orange yarn to match but ran out pretty quickly.  I thought I had enough Wild West to finish it, but I was annoyingly mistaken.  I figured if I had to use another yarn, I'd match the other color in Wild West and got some Caron Simply Soft in some pretty Blue Mint to finish off the hat.
