A Warrior's Hat!

I have taken a little break from my Knitting and embarked on a journey through the stars to the Klingon Home world, Qo'noS , to get inspiration for this Skull Cap or hat. It embodies the Klingon Trifold Insignia. This is the start of the Hat. I am using Lamb's Pride Worsted, 85% wool, 15% Mohair. I am carrying the yarn along. I am using the Brown Heather and Prairie Fire colors from this bunch.


The second picture shows you the story of the hat. I find that carrying the yarn along gives me a lot of freedom to be creative in my endeavor. Creating a one of a kind hat is one of the biggest pleasurable endeavors that I take. It is amazing to see the story the wool and the hat are trying to tell you. I will tell you more later on this week. This hat is to be a form fit. This wool does not stretch much, but if you want a hat that fits to a T this is a good choice and a great quality material for that.



Part of me wants to make it really big and felt it. I will refrain from such endeavor at this time lol! I think I will finish the hat soon, I will not cut the yarn off until the client tries the hat one. If you want a one of a kind hat this is the way to go. Thanks for stopping by!
