i’d never embroidered over ribbing before, so i kept the stitches pretty loose and i think it turned out pretty well

  1. I really love this hat. i never would have thought of embroidering over ribbing and the color is great. also, i made a lace scarf for my mom with the snapdragon worsted, it was a birthday present and i didn’t take a picture before i gave it to her, but i will try to get a pic. it turned out really nice and it was great to work with. :)

    • yay! glad the scarf turned out well. frankly, i had never thought to embroider over it before either, but this is the style of hat she wanted and i thought it would look awkward up above the ribbing.

  2. At first I was worried that the embroidery would mean you couldn’t fold down the brim. But really, I don’t ever fold down brims on hats, and I think it looks really cute!

  3. Hi Cosy, I seem to be having trouble trying to purchase some of your yarns .. can you give me the link to what is available please Sharon
