Shaping The Way....
I think I've touched on this topic before....designing hats, not my favourite part of the job at all, but it is a necessary part.
Apart from around 5 hats most of my patterns have derived from vintage patterns, with minor adjustments for todays yarn and todays baby sizes...a touch bigger! As time has gone on, I am slowly letting those patterns go in favour of my own designs.....thus that is where the hard work comes in.
I have 4 new hats on paper but now comes the slow laborious part of knitting every size that I want to make and then making the adjustments to the pattern as I go along, & then trying to make sense of my notes at the end of the job.
Anyway one of my little hats is well on the way, I've started spending a little time each day working on the first size......here is a little look at what I've been up to this week.
One of my favourite colours, daffodil yellow.
