These beautiful hats are just what you need to keep you warm this winter! The design is created by working the Tapestry stitch; which means simply you don’t cut your yarn but rather carry it through the entire pattern! By working the design in the manner it eliminates the number of ends you will have to sew in at the end of the project. Also because of crochet technique of carrying that yarn though out the project then end result is an even warmer hat!

Don’t worry if this is your first Tapestry project (it was mine!), I have included a link to a simple tutorial in the pattern to help you get started. If you are at all familiar with changing colors mid row while crocheting then this will be a breeze for you!

Worked with Paint Box yarn which has amazing color options! The hardest thing to do will to be to pick the colors you are wanting to use! Working with this yarn is amazing! Its smooth and flows easily through your fingers and I had no issues of the yarn splitting! Im quite excited to have a bit of yarn left over and look forward to making another design using it!

The actual pattern for the Tapestry stitching is shown in a graph so you it is easier to follow and no tricky wording to follow.
