This hat didnt actually take me that long thank goodness! I was just messing around with different stitches and this is what happened. The colors are pretty and theres even some silver thread wound in it.  Reminds me of scales and



All of these scarves were for a craft fair i went to at my school!!  The only thing that bugs me about a couple is that the ends/sides rolled.

The end sides rolled thing is supposed to happen  Grin They are scrunchy style neck wraps.

But if you don't like that, you can spray starch and hit them with a low heat iron. With the scarf temporarily between muslin fabric so it does not melt, stick, or burn to the iron. Plain paper can work for that, too.

Or you can starch and stick {wet} with pins to a piece of cardboard or styrofoam. And let it dry there, on its own. Like a doily. The outside of pizza boxes work well with this method. Wrap & twist, pin, spray, let dry. Grin

Just ideas. I love your scarfs. And the hat is certainly an interesting stitch.

Thanks! I will try that out! Yeah i didn't really know what the hat was going to turn out like to be honest. I decided to try out a pattern i made up in my head and that's what happened. haha I dont hate the pattern but i dont necessarily love it either. Its a learning experience i guess.
