Hat to Match Blue Variant Scarf


With leftover yarn from my Blue Variant of the Dr. Who Scarf, I made this hat inspired by the big, slouchy shape of Scotty's hat from the first of the new Star Trek movies.  All the garter stitch in this cuffed slouch hat make it super cozy warm.  I used the gray and two of the blues from my scarf.

Next winter I will dress up my navy blue coat with this Star Trek/Dr. Who combo.

Check Out this Crochet Scarf Pattern!

Even though the Twilight movies are old news by now, those movies did have some great knitwear in them--thanks to the cold, damp climate of Forks, WA.  I found this pattern on Ravelry and want to thank the blogger for crocheting this Carlisle baseball scarf lookalike:

Pom Poms with Ease

Preemie Hat with Pom Pom

I found a great video showing how to make pom poms with a hairpin lace loom.  It looks much easier than threading yarn through the hole in the middle of a pom pom maker:



I'll be trying this today, as I have to fill a large order with 20 pom poms.  I'll be sure to let my readers know how I like this technique.
