Fiber Arts FO Friday: Fedora

Fiber Arts FridayI mentioned last week that I needed to work on a hat. Well, I finished it last weekend:

Grey fedora

Crocheted of recycled (100 percent cotton) sweater yarn.

This was my second time following this pattern, and it went a lot faster than the headache-inducing first time. Still, it took *way* longer than most crocheted hats take me.

Once I got that done, I spent most of the week working away on my Motley [project link] [pattern link] — I’m almost half done! I’m quite enjoying seeing how the colors work together. Also: Entrelac is not as scary as some people make it sound.

  1. So cute! Is the pattern available online?

  2. What a fabulous hat! It looks great on you. I haven’t tried entrelac yet — I find it intriguing, but I’m not sure how often I would use it. There are some new pattern books out for entrelac though which are getting good reviews.

  3. I love that hat! The ribbed-ish texture and design of the brim are fantastic.

  4. The brim makes that hat. Nice job!
    I cast on my very first baby sweater today. Pretty excited about it! Organic corn yarn chosen by the preggo mommy for her first little girl…

  5. Whoa, I love the hat!!!!!!! Did you have to reinforce it at the top? It looks perfect.

  6. Cute fedora! I checked out your Rav link, it looks cute on both you and your Dad.

  7. That is a really cute hat and I love that it’s using recycled yarn. Now I want one like that.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  8. Cool hat! I really like the color.

  9. The hat looks great, I love that it is upcycled yarn

  10. The hat looks terrific on you! I love how you used recycled yarn for it. The Motley pattern looks so cool. I’ve never tried entrelac before but I love how colorful the results are.

  11. I love this hat. With my cold afternoon ahead, I may just have to find a pattern like this for myself. Awesome!!

  12. Oh, I love its shape and the color! I wish I could crochet too, but no matter how hard I try, I always end up with a bunch of knots that would give a sailor a headache!

  13. I’m a hat person and I LOVE this hat! Very impressive!

What do you think? I'd love to know.
