Barley Hat

I am so pleased with the way this Barley Hat turned out. I held two strands of my hand dyed yarns together to create this look. I have enough yarn left to make two more hats. I want to dye some orange yarn to pair with the colorful yarn and maybe gray or black for the third hat

  1. This hat is lovely! I really like your yarn colors – dyeing your own yarn is so great! I just downloaded the pattern because it is the perfect one for gifts for this Christmas for my family. Thanks!


  2. I love the look too. Had I just seen the two hanks of yarn next to each other I would never have thought that I would like the end result of holding them together, but it looks great!


      1. Indeed. I showed it to my partner and he thinks it is awesome. I only crochrt but he knits so maybe he will have a go. He says he likes the idea of purple and rainbow for himself! I will let you know if he ever does give it a go!
