100% Recycled and 100% Experiment

First let me explain the recycled part. The white yarn is some that I unraveled and washed from an H&M sweater, it is 30% wool and 70% acrylic, and very chunky. Then on a whim I decided to spin it with some recycled silk, which comes from cutting off the ends of saris in manufacturing.

So I had this neat looking yarn on my spindle and I had no idea what to do with it. Then I thought... "I've never crocheted a hat, I've crocheted other things, but maybe I'll try a hat." So I did.

It is chunky and rather reminds me of a snow cone, in a good way. One very nice thing about this hat is that even though it is super thick it has great ventilation because it was crocheted on a large needles so whoever becomes the proud owner will not get over heated.

Please still cast your vote on my poll, and as always I love to read your comments. Have a great weekend!


  1. I love the hat. You'd never know you had never crocheted a hat before. I think the combination of the materials and the color and texture it created.
