I had a little down time today and so I made a hat. I've never tried this style before but was aiming for a cloche-ish shape but in a totally unfancy way. Does that make sense?

I used an old sweater my boyfriend no longer wears. I'm sorry I didn't take any befores but it was a pretty basic dude sweater. I still have lots of it left over and look forward to working with it more. It's sort of half felted from him not following care instructions and I think it was only part wool and part something else.

Anyway here is me photographing me in the hat (I always look goofy)

Thanks for looking. I plan to improve upon this style and ideas and comments would be totally welcome!

That looks great! I've never tried cutting up an old sweater/jumper, I guess I always thought it would just fray if I did that.. I think I'm going to have a go at this.. thanks for sharing!  Smiley

That looks great! Nice job!

I plan to make some hats before it becomes the weather gets really bad. 

You got a really  nice cloche shape.  Would you consider doing a tute, or explaining the shape of the pieces that you cut?  If you do a tute, that would be really awesome.

That's a great hat, just the shape I'm looking for this autumn.

All my hats look a little sad, they've been worn so much that I'm tired of them, I may raid my husband's wardrobe for an old sweater!

I'm looking at a gorgeous sweater that doesn't fit my husband, I would love to turn it into this hat!  If you can swing a tutorial our way I'm sure we'd all be super grateful.  Thanks so much, it looks so cute on you!

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley
