A trio

I finished the third in the series of striped 1898 hats.

This one is two shades of blue: a soft heathered medium blue (Wool-eze) and navy (Red Heart Super Saver).  Same stripe sequence as the others though I only played yarn chicken with the first hat.

I’m going to toss these in the washer and dryer to soften up the acrylic Red Heart yarn…unless you know of another way to soften them.

Oh, and I decided to follow Jude and Salpal’s advice.  Leave the green hat as is and not be concerned with the wonky stitches.  It IS for a child after all.

  1. These look fantastic! I’ve had success softening up scratchy acrylic by soaking for a bit in water with a generous amount of (hair) conditioner before you throw it in the wash. Good luck getting them as soft and warm as they look!
