Use your lace weight mohair/silk scraps, some dk weight yarn and a pompom to make this warm and cozy hat! You can’t make just one.

My younger kiddo has always loved fuzzy, warm things more than anything. He’s been sick with Covid at college, even though he is fully vaccinated, and it was a bad case. When I was able to get something to him, I sent him snuggly things: a body pillow, a weighted heating pad for his chest… But in the end there’s nothing else like a hand- knitted piece of fuzzy love with a hot pink pompom. The hat he chose to keep used about 130 yards of dk weight wool with odds and ends of mohair/silk totaling about double that yardage. It’s got a button inside to switch up the pompoms, but he didn’t want any others.

Fuzzy Love Hat is simple to make and easy to re-size. It’s got a patttern that shows on a lighter color or just looks tweedy with a darker color. You can wear it with a pompom or without. And best of all, it feels like a warm hug.

About my project

Welcome to my oddments project number two! (See the first one here.)

This has been a tough few years for many. Me too. And one thing that’s gotten me through is giving people I care about small gifts. Let’s face it: big projects are beyond what many of us want to do right now. But small bits of knitted love are so manageable, and they’re so satisfying when finished and gifted. And even moreso when they’re made from oddments.

And I wanted to share that lovely feeling with you, because we all have those stray bits and pieces of yarn here and there. They’re different weights and different colors. Some are a full skein. Some are just leftover tidbits, but you can’t throw them away! Definitely not a sweater’s worth of any one color or yarn, let alone a shawl’s worth or even a full pair of socks or mitts. You can’t imagine what to do with them, but you don’t want to part with them. Well. This is the book for you! 15 patterns to turn your scraps into loving bits of kindness that will brighten your friends’ and loved ones’ day.

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending February 15, 2022. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern; the goal is to release at least the majority of patterns in 2021. But because life has been fairly unpredictable of late, I want to make sure you all understand that it may take until February 15, 2022 to deliver them all. All patterns will have charts (if needed) and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of oddments. These are small projects, not big ones: the perfect size for a cozy evening or two of stitching in front of the fire.

Note that purchasing the eBook represents a significant discount over purchasing each pattern separately. No refunds can be given for buying the patterns separately and then, at a later date, purchasing the complete eBook. If you have made a single pattern purchase in error and wished to purchase the book instead, please contact me within a week to resolve the issue. Thank you!
