This is attempts number two and three at a knitted geode. I would love to spend more time on these, making wonkier shapes, more colour options, just plain bigger versions. At the moment I’d be quite happy to spend the entire year knitting rocks, I’m not sure that the website would keep getting hits if I did though.
Winter’s here, and there is nothing better for keeping warm than a trapper hat. This rural favorite seems to be following the likes of plaid shirts and PBR for a surge in hipster popularity, but hipness factor aside I just love this hat! It keeps me super warm and comfy in the snow, and is perfect for some après ski bling.
Like most trapper hats, the earflaps fold up and snap into place for two styles in one. I omitted ties or a buckle at first wanting to keep things simple, but realized after it flew off sledding that ties are very helpful! I made this from disco fabricand fake fur, but you could make it from different fabrics for a completely different look.
