This is going to be a very interesting design. I am looking forward to making the hat up to the crown so that I can see the design lol! I hope to have this hat finished by the weekend.

I have started to make this Slytherin hat using a graph and looking at how to make a snake. My golden snitches stitch markers are a great help. Stay tuned, this will be in color stranding as well.

I just wanted to show you the backside of this hat. Color stranding is not a hard technique to do, but it is a very detail oriented technique. You have to pay attention to what you are doing or you will end up with a new pattern lol! I am looking toward finishing this hat by the weekend. Even though It looks tight, the material has a great flexibility. When it is blockes it will be very nicely formed. I am using Shea Butah (butter) on my hands as I knit along! Thanks for stopping by.

This is my first real attempt at color stranding with a design that is more than just a checkered board. Let's see what happens today when I tackle the main are with the Norwegian Star design.
