Hat week has been continuing for me this week! After my lovely Brioche hat that I was so proud of last week I still had a fair amount of the lovely Rico Bonbon wool I had used left over. Not enough for a whole new hat but it got me thinking... I picked a ball of Rico Wild Wild Wool in Black and cast on for a simple hat with a stripe from the multicoloured Bonbon.
This hat left me with still a fair bit of the Bonbon and most of the ball of black Wild Wild Wool. So, another hat was cast on, this time I thought narrow stripes would be strikig with the colours of the Bonbon. Hat 2 was born - only downside was a lot of ends to sew in!
Unbelievably, I was still left with enough black to complete another hat, but had very little Bonbon left - until I remembered the left overs from my legwarmers I knitted last year in a particularily cold spell. Hat 3 is bridging the gap between Hat 1 and Hat2, wide stripes using all the leftovers.
So there we have it, 2 balls of super chunky wool, some leftovers and a few hour's work, and we now have 4 new hats available to buy in the shop!
