Waffle Hat – May 2022 Personal Stash Yarn Challenge

Craft Category:
Start Date: June 15, 2022
Finish Date: June 16, 2022


Yarn: Handspun…I have no record of this, but it was at least an aran weight yarn. Used approximately 103 yards.

Pattern: None…though I did incorporate the stitch  motif from the Thermal Boot Cuffs.

Needles: US7 and US8


I have no record of when I did this handspun or from what fiber. :shrug: It was a pretty heavy duty yarn, close to a bulky for sure, which made finding a project for it a challenge. After a couple of false starts, I used the waffle pattern from the boot toppers I just made and it worked out surprisingly well. Cast on 90 stitches and managed to execute decreases that didn’t completely mess up the patterning. It fits perfectly, though if it stretches out any, it’ll be you loose and will need to be snugged up in the dryer.
