Stashbusting: Scrap Hat
As mentioned in my previous post, I’m keen to use up every last scrap of yarn and so……. I present ‘The Scrap Hat!”
I made it using an assortment of yarns leftover from previous projects – as these were of varying weights, I worked some of the rows holding 2 or 3 strands together. In case anyone is curious as to which yarns they are….
From top to bottom:
- Cascade Pastaza in Mauve Heather 075 (this is a really beautiful blend of llama and wool – leftover from making a Fat Bottom Bag).
- Cascade 220 in Cerise held together with Crystal Palace Kid Merino in Berry (a laceweight yarn left over from my first Cassia Scarf).
- Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere in Purple held with Crystal Palace Kid Merino again plus 1 strand of Sirdar Snuggly DK in Ballerina (leftover from my baby ruffle sweater)
- Cascade 220 again.
- Cascade Pastaza again.
I didn’t really follow a pattern – just made it up as I went along and kept trying it on my noggin to check it fitted. I’m pleased with the end result though – a really quick and easy way to use up scraps – plus it’s the first thing I’ve made for myself in a long, long time!
