Hip to be Square (hat)

$5.00 USD

Ever become obsessed with a fabric you’ve created with your yarn and needles and want to use it with absolutely everything? That’s the rabbit hole I fell down while participating in another round of the Artesanitarium Design Challenge. For this round of the challenge, our prompt was to combine two design features – After a vote with the rhyFlower test team, we decided to go forth with texture and colorwork. This was going to be a challenge for me indeed! Colorwork is not one of my stronger skills, but I agreed to go with whatever the team had chosen, so the ball was in their court! – I fell so in love with the colors and textures of Hip to be Square that I couldn’t stop knitting it and went from a cowl design to adding in a hat and mittens too.
