Gnomey Hat in Handspun

This one didn't come out as well as the other one - the 2 colors don't quite go together, but it works. I had to adjust the pattern for his big head and should've started the slower decreases sooner. The yarn is handspun from a swap I did with cauchy09. I wish I had more of the blue yarn to make that part bigger. But oh well! It's a really cool hat though. I think it looks better in person.


I had to adjust the pattern to 70sts, and then made braid ties instead of pom poms.

    Aww, another cute one! You did well with the short yardage of the handspun. I hope to tackle mine some time this summer.

    Oh so cute (both the hat and the model)!
