What's this? Posting on a Saturday?!
I've got so many fun hats to share with you in the next week (in preparation for the 100th Hat Celebration!) and I just couldn't fit them all in on week days, so Saturday it is!
I had the pleasure of test knitting Coppe a few weeks ago for Kylie, and have fallen in love with it! I knit it up using acrylic yarn - meaning I couldn't really block it all that well - and got a fabulous slouchy hat. When knit in wool yarn, this hat blossoms into a gorgeous beret style hat as well!
Test knitting is such a fun way to experience a new designer's patterns (new to the designing world, or just new to me as in this case) - I'm excited to do more of it in the coming weeks and months, and to share the finished results with you!
I'm making 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. This is hat 089.
