It’s that time again, hat and scarf season. Sweater weather is my favorite time of year here in Ohio and when the temperature tips just enough for me to put on a hat I am happiest of all.
I was inspired by my daughter, who has an affinity for the beanie style hat, to design this patchwork version made from recycled sweaters. I wanted to feature the lovely colors and textures of the fabrics and create something that is utilitarian and beautiful. It’s a long process from choosing the sweaters, washing and drying them, then cutting them into the pattern pieces to be sewn together.
They are one of a kind, soft, slouchy, warm, simple and interesting. Too many adjectives? For me, these hit all the right spots for a hat.
