Glacier Hat

Brrrrr! The inspiration for this hat came from the yarn itself, obtained in a swap with Counting Mermaids. As I began it, the colors reminded me of the melting summer glaciers in Glacier Lake in the Yukon, pale greens and blues and cloudy whites.

I finished the top and earflaps with Lamb's Pride Bulky in Creme doubled with a sparkly, rickracky yarn called Muench Bella Donna in Teal.

I found a great bead store in NYC, to get some icy looking stone and glass beads to frost the glacial look.

This hat is just begging for a blizzard and aurora borealis.

DESIGN category for Whiplash

I just found out about your hat from Whip Up's competition, and I think it is great. I love the colour and the style.

I want one so bad! I think I'm going to have to make my own, I hope you don't mind.

Great job!

It's melting . . . fabulous! The color, the yarn texture, the beads, the long ropy melty bits -- love it all.
