handmade commercial hat


It’s my standard bag in bag situation.


A slow grow, but I really love the classic simplicity of this hat, it has a clever trick and a bit of whipstitching to get the perfect hold the fold, triple thick brim.


By all accounts, it appears I like to knit hats that look like ready-made hats.

(I had a hat like this as a kid, it was white with a light purple brim, a huge white and purple pom pom on top and an E.T. patch on the band 💕)

Pattern: Oslo Hat by PetiteKnit

Yarn: I used one strand Dk weight wool (pattern suggests fingering weight held double)

into the pink with cat blob

Flash of pink inside, that peeks out just ever so slightly. Worked first (30) of brim in hot pink, including the purl round for the turn, then switched to main body color and worked as written.

Pattern: Midas Hat by Laura Reinbach.

all production halts due to sleepy cat blob, this is kiki aka baby godzilla or kikachu. ♥
