An accidental hat ๐Ÿ˜†

Hi folks,

It all started with this little felted bowl…


I loosely crocheted a bowl shape and then felted it. I added a crochet border. It’s not a great colour but as it was an experiment I was fine with it. It holds little notions at the moment…


A few weeks on and I thought I’d be clever and make a larger bowl. I had spun a hundred grams of grayish brown Gotland fibre that I bought fromย  here. I didn’t enjoy spinning it and I didn’t make a very good job of it either so it was my go to choice for a larger bowl. So I crocheted away creating a nice flat base and then went straight up the sides. I thought it would create a cylindrical bowl type shape.

I was wrong. Very wrong. Get ready to laugh out loud ๐Ÿ˜†…


Yep! It became a hat! A cloche hat at that. This is the photo that LH took for me so I could show my friend G.

Ok, that’s enough, you can stop laughing now!

So here is a close up. I crocheted a simple edge around the brim and added a simple crochet flower and embroidery in handspun teal merino from the same lovely supplier…


So there we are. A happy accident ๐Ÿ˜Š
