52 hats :: 12 - Something different



The title says it all: with this hat I just wanted to do something different. And I think that worked out quite nice. The garter stitch brim gives it a comfortable fit and the vertical stripes made it interesting to knit (and to look at, I think). Defnitely one to make again!

  1. I never think to make such a deep garter brim. Perfect! I might steal this idea for a baby hat.

    1. I was aiming for something different... I do like how that worked out ;-) I think it would be really cute and comfortable for a baby hat.

  2. Is it the same hat. It is amazing how different the colour has come out.

    1. Yes, the same hat. I need to retake that top picture (the color of my face is really weird too), but haven't found (made) time to do that yet.

  3. Great hat! I love how the garter gets carried upwards in the stripes.

  4. love that wide brim! I find the older I get I love more cover up of my ears when wearing a hat.

    1. I've always liked wide brims, maybe that had something to do with the fact that I had lots of ear infections when I was a child.

    1. Thanks. Yes, I'm actually way ahead (I do have time knit, but making time to take pictures and write blogs is harder).
