The first two are 100% acrylic!! I'm sooo glad that I don't have to stick to just wool blends and I found mass amounts of more sweaters to unravel. It's going to be a long long week Tongue
Sorry I got a little corny with the pictures Cheesy
The first one reminds me of a electric cotton candy blue!

Bubble gum pink!!

And a plain purple wool blend (I just got super excited about the acrylic ones so this one is a little plain to me).

I used a szQ hook. The yarn varries because I make the hats out of recycled sweaters so some is chunkier than others but I try to make sure it's a little thicker, but it's not like the chunky yarn you can buy at yarn stores.

its cool to be vegan and all, but acrylic is plastic, it's a petroleum bi-product, which isn't environmentally friendly.

I understand that but these are also made out of recycled sweaters so technically these hats are environmentally friendly. I just put that in the title because in my previous post all the hats were wool and I was having a hard time recycling other fibers so I was excited to do some acrylic ones and have them turn out good.
