Radical Fringe Hat


Here's what happens when you get carried away with overtwisted yarns. This hat -- or fez, or toque, or product of a Rastafarian sheep, whatever -- combines knitting and weaving techniques. The band is handwoven in a honeycomb pattern, using orange and purple 2-ply yarns as pattern weft on a green foundation. The top was handknitted and the top-knot is a tassle of handspun singles that curl up playfully when left to their own devices. From the Ministry of Silly Hats, for sale in my Etsy shop.
