kool aide dyed wool hat
This hat was one of the first projects I ever made out of wool. My mom was driving home from work one day, and someone had bags of this bulky, itchy wool at the end of their driveway, for free! Well, my mom know enough to scoff up the yarn, and so she did. The yarn was all rather dull colors, so this was something I dyed out of kool aide.
Use bulky wool yarn of choice and Hook to get gauge, I believe I used a K hook.
Gauge: 2 hdc = 1"
Ch 3, 6 sc in 3rd chain from hook.
Mark beginning of rounds.
Round 1 & 2: 1 hdc, 2 hdc in next stitch, repeat around.
Rnd 3: 1 hdc in first 2 stitches, 2 hdc in next st, repeat around.
Keep increasing each row until hat reaches 6".
Work even for 5-6 rows, or desired length of hat.
sc, ch 1, repeat all the way around hat.
Next round: sc in every ch 1 space, ch 1 across. End off, weave in ends. Enjoy!
