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.

Hope you like Cheesy

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

That's cute. The flower detail really looks good with the curves of the other seams Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Sure you could! Felt doesn't fray. Just put the seams on the outside, and then trim close to the stitches.
