Baby it’s cold outside! Yes, winter is holding us tight and I love this weather. When the hoarfrost glistens in the morning and the red-gold sun rises slowly. Snow and frozen lakes, thick clouds of breath during a winter walk – wonderful! But also very frosty …
Without a hat I do not go out in the fall and my children are never without headgear on the way. And because I think that then may even attract attention, this time I have a gaudy wool hat a gaudy makeover missed. And that’s easy:
You need this:
- plain chunky knit hat
- gaudy wool in some of the yarn thickness, like the wool of the cap
- wool needle
- Paper plate
And this is how it is done:
- First, you embroider the cap with little hearts. To do this, you thread a piece of gaudy wool onto the needle, tap from the inside to the outside at the bottom edge of the hat and secure and protect the starting thread.
- Then it starts with the embroidery, follow the stitches of the cap, embroider over a V of a cap mesh a V from the contrasting wool. Continue to pull the thread on the inside of the cap (about 4 stitches on the same row) and prick out again to sew the next v. Keep it up until you have finished a series.
- Then pull the thread up inside again and start a new row.
- When embroidering, you should firstly pay attention to a uniform distance of the V’s, on the other hand also make sure that the internal tensioning threads are not too tight.
- Continue to stitch until the entire cap surface is covered with small Vs.
- Leave the end of the thread with the needle long and work the pompom first.
- For the pompom you take a paper plate and cut away the ribbed edge.
- Bend the plate in the middle and cut a hole out of the middle.
- Put a long piece of your loud wool in the Tellerknick.
- Now you start to wrap a lot of wool around the plate semi-circle.
- If you have a decent bale, you cut the plate down and wrap the thread around it in the bale of wool. Tightening and tightening.
- Now you cut the individual loops and trim your pompom until it is nice and round.
- With the long left thread of your embroidery work, you can now sew the bobble to the hat.
Secure and store the end thread.
And is my lodge but great? And best of all – no one else in her school has this cap! This means: confusion excluded, And by the bright wool you can find them even in the largest sledding on the mountain quickly among all the other children.
So now I’m going to make a little round in Winterwonderland, sit down on a park bench and let the warmth of the sun fill up my Vitamin D memory. And you?
I wish you a creative week!
