My mountain ski hat

Hand crafted head wear is everywhere.   Surfers, snowboarders and skiers, even mountain bikers and hikers – from sea to snow to turf, a whole range of young adrenaline junkies appreciate the warmth and practicality of a hand crafted hat.

Last August I entered my hat design in a  “Ski Hat” competition.  The organizers mailed me a few skeins of lovely soft and bulky Schachenmayr  My Mountain yarn and I decided to crochet my design:

No, I did not win anything but it was a fun experience and I am happy with my new snow hat.  If you want to try a new yarn this season, I recommend you try this one.

Especially if you have not much experience in knitting or crochet, this yarn is a dream.  It is warm, soft and easy to work with.  Just to let you know:  this is purely my own opinion.

Check their website for some great trendy patterns:

Here is the second hat I designed:

No worries, you do not have to be a snowboarder to appreciate a nice warm hat,  so go ahead and have fun making one for yourself.
