I had a knit hat that I was tired of. It was still as fresh looking as the day it was originally made but I never chose to wear it. I took just a tiny bit of yarn and a couple of minutes and quickly added a touch of style ot the hat and felt like I had a brand new one. This technique can work well for new knitters or crocheters, and also can be used to update and personalize a store bought knit hat.
I picked up a smal skein of fancy sparkly “fur” yarn – the smallest skein they sold was more than enough. Using a small crochet hook – size F worked for me, I simply added a single row of single crochet stitches around the edge of the hat. That’s all. Now the hat has a subtle yet fresh touch of style to it that made an old hat “new” to me.
Another suggestion? Search your pin collection. You may just find, as I did, a costume jewelry piece that when attached to the hat will give it a fun new look!
