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 πŸ’•)

weirdo socks forever!

I’ve hoarded crazy sock yarn since the beginning of my knit life, never once thinking I would ever actually knit socks with it.
