i do want to make one little correction note about natalie’s blog post – this particular hat was designed using commercially available yarns for wider accessibility since i put it into the world as a free pattern, not my recycled hand-dyed. hand-dyed yarn would look excellent with this wavy hat pattern, however, and i love that natalie linked to my kool-aid dyeing tutorials. i would love love love to see someone use the self-striping dye method and knit it into the wavy hat, i think it would look superrad!!
my spiral stripes hat set is the one that uses my self-striping dyed yarn, and you can get that pattern set in a kit with yarn and stitch markers. and on a side note, that spiral hat pattern set, and also my ninja mitts $1 pattern, are now available through ravelry! yay!! and you don’t even have to be a ravelry member to buy them – you can just click this link for the spiral hats, or this link for the mitts. (my store update is coming very soon to make the pattern-buying process easier!)
oh and one more time, in case you are coming to my blog after seeing the craft podcast – if you happen to be in portland, i’m teaching a class on the wavy hat at twisted on may 4th+11th. yeah! see the twisted site for details.
ps – did anyone notice in that orange hat photo i’m wearing my “i heart craft” button? yeah i do!!
