I went on a kick crocheting up some hats from a bunch of my handspun yarns. These are my first true complete projects that took some time from my handspun. Some of the yarn was spun on a wheel, some on a spindle. These are incredibly warm. The handspun really gives them nice thickness. They are all the same pattern, which I love. It's very easy and very repetitive, simple to memorize. On with the hats! Pattern, Divine Hat by Rheatheylia: http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=0


a blend of silver alpaca and natural color bamboo, it's shiny and warm, this one is equally warm but not as thick as the others


SSS white wool, some spun thick and thin for nice bumpy texture. I put in a little chain to size the hat because it's a little big for my head. Plus I like tying a little bow in front, it's cute. The edging and chain are done in bamboo.


This is a combination of fibers I got in swaps or from STS. There is wool, bamboo, firestar, alpaca, milk fiber, sequins and no telling what else.


Another combo of swap fibers. I know there is bamboo, wool, milk fiber, alpaca and firestar at least. The edges are bamboo.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much! I can't decide which one I'm going to keep for me. The white one is my favorite.  Smiley
