I’ve been meaning to make a puff stitch hat for a while now and this week finally got around to it. I bought this glittery silver/grey wool last Christmas and it was perfect for this two colour hat. It’s much shinier than it comes out in the photos. The closeup below shows it better.
With the gradual colour change I think it is wonderfully reminiscent of falling snow. Plus the turquoise is a good icy colour.
There is enough silver wool left for a second hat and I’m thinking of switching the sliver to the bottom (fallen snow) with a darker colour on top to play the part of a night winter sky.
It was trickier to make than I expected (I didn’t find any patterns I liked so just made it up as I went along) The band, colour change and gathering at the top were the main areas I had to rework as I’ve not used puff stitch much before. It was perfect for this colour change effect though once I realised how to adjust it.
Oh, and if you really want it but don’t want to make one then I’ve put this one up for sale in my Etsy shop (since I’m already planning the next one. I have so many hats…)
