The amazing Woolly Wormhead has come out with a new 10-pattern book called Painted Woolly Toppers and, boy, do we love it! In it, you’ll find stunning hat designs that were created with hand-dyed, painted, and variegated yarns in mind. SweetGeorgia Yarns definitely fits in that mold and we are honored that our yarn, Tough Love Sock, was included in the unique Vortice hat.
In Vortice, the colours swirl around towards the crown in a biased and sideways construction (we told you it was unique). The finish looks almost like a spiral that draws you in to the beautiful travel of the hues. You’ll need to understand provisional cast-on, short rows, and Kitchener stitch to knit the hat, but with the illustrated tutorials, 4 sizes, and a choice of finishing, you’re automatically set up for success.
The rest of the hats in the book are just stunning with distinctive shapes and techniques. You will not have any trouble making the best use of your hand-dyed stash in these small, instant-gratification projects. Woolly has truly outdone herself!
