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.

Here is the second hat I designed:

Doesn’t this look great!
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.
