This hat is hand knit from hand-dyed, handspun yarn, comprised of wool and silk threads and glass lady bugs that are spun into the yarn. I originally spun it as the Douglas Spalding Yarn from Fiber in the Hands of an Angry Spinner, when I was selling yarns.
I have kind of a fat head (just over 23″ at the crown), putting me at about a size 7 3/8 hat–which is still slightly smaller than Michael’s. It is a knit hat, with a tight rib, so it fits even Farmergirl’s head, which is only 21.5 inches.
The snail is knit from a pattern available at the lovely Mochimochiland.
(I’m just glad they don’t ooze on the keyboard like real snails).
If you’re hot to have this hat, check my barter page, which lists things that I’d be willing to barter for.
