Stashing Busting for Halos of Hope
Last week I mentioned how lucky I was to receive some beautiful samples of Cascade Yarn. (See post here.) I also made a brief mention of Halo of Hope’s latest hat collection campaign, the Kanine Kap Kampaign. I wanted to transform some of the cotton Cascade Yarn into a dog hat for this collection but was stumped. What kind of dog can I make with bright red yarn….hmmm… Seriously, I don’t know where my brain was. It hasn’t been that long since I was teaching my boys how to read…with CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG easy readers!!!! Finally my brain fart ended and ding! the light bulb went off. I just love Avalon and it was the perfect yarn and the perfect red for this hat. I didn’t use a pattern. I kind of made up the ears and nose as I went along and had to work them a couple of times as I had to limit the hat to just the one skein of yarn. I ended up with about 8 inches of yarn to spare. The nose and whites of the eyes are scrap yarn and he has shiny black button eyes. This hat weighs in at 3 3/4 ounces.
