A sweater was washed a littel to warm and since it was my favorite sweater I just couldn't throw it away. So after some dummies made of old t-shirts it turned out to a whirling hat that really have become my favorit. I even liked more than the sweater Wink


I added a flower with reflector fabric


From above


And here is the pattern (in Swedish and English) if any one would like to try to make one.

Darling and clever! I just got a new overlock, and this is so on my list. A heavy tee shirt fabric would be cool for spring and summer. And I LOVE the flower.

Your English instructions are very clear. We'd say "fabric that doesn't fray"

This is such a fantastic reconstruction. I was chopping up a wool jumper the other day and made a scarf and was trying to figure out a matching beanie, so this has been really helpful. I love the flower detail as well  Smiley
