Ravenclaw Philosopher's Hat

I decided to rename this hat , The Ravenclaw Philosopher's Hat. It is a combination of Tapestry Crochet , crochet cables and FPdc. If you want to know more about Tapestry Crochet from a teaching point of view you may want to visit the website TapestryCrochet.com
From far the bottom edge in the blue looks like a kitty cat! I used Knit Picks Andean Silk "Slate" and Knit Picks "Blue Ink" Wool of the Andes. I used a combination of F 3.75 mm and G 4.00 mm hooks. The reason behind this is to add texture to the hat.

The hat is very comfortable and it will be followed by a Griffindor Philosopher's Hat. One of the interesting stitches that I used on this hat was the Reverse Double Crochet, which I used to make the edging. It created a very interesting look and texture to the finishing of this hat.

Thanks for stopping by!
