Knitting Hats

baby hats knit with scrap sock yarn
The two hats on the top were knit with scraps from this pair of socks, the pink tone hat was knit with scraps from a shawl that has yet to be blocked, and the small hat in the front was knit with assorted scrap sock yarn. I enjoy the helical stripe technique when using assorted scraps, especially when I use a solid yarn for the coordinating and dominate color.


The helical stripe technique is easy and fun technique - have you tried it yet?

  11. Hum, never even heard of that technique! Does it have to do with how you close up the top of the hat?
