I love it!


you crack me up!

the hat is SO adorable. i must make one for Sutton. thanks!


What a great re-use of a sweater! So cute.


You can even wear that hat during summer season. what a great idea! I love it. Those flower design could be a great hair clip style also. Thanks for sharing this idea.


I love the sweater concept. I came up with a similar idea back in December.


Very Cute! Love the flower addition!

I love this pattern and want to give it a try but need help visualizing one of the sewing steps. After you sew both sides up, are you saying that you just cut straight across the top and then just sew across to finish? I checked the pictures but want to make sure that this is what you are saying.

I'm so anal.............Thanks! :)


Hi Leslie,
That parts a little confusing. I sewed along the top and then trimmed it. You can see it better if you click on the photo of the hat inside out after the 2nd seam was created. It is "rounded" across the top and not all the way down the sides. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

That is so cute. I love the flower! Thanks for linking up. Adding you to my blogroll. :)

Too cute, but I'm afraid I'll never be more than the equivalent of a nurse when it comes to sewing... or maybe a candy-striper. :) Thanks for sharing. If I ever get up the courage to slice a sweater, I'll give it a try.

Just so you know...I would wear that hat. I just might make one for myself. And the tutorial...I really like the encouragement. Speaks right to my needy heart "Take a deep breath" "Good Job!". :) Glad I found you! I"ll stop by again!

OMG! That is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! Love the colors. Great job.


That is really so cute...guess I will think twice before sending my old sweaters out to the Goodwill...


Here from Blue Cricket - love the darling felt flower on front!!!

I need to do this. I wonder how many hats you could get out of one sweater? I think Ruffles and Stuff did something similar in a looser, beret-style hat...


Darling!! The hat turned out very nice.


So cute - the hat and your model!


It is cute but that flower just drives the point home. Just yesterday I was thinking of what to do with a bunch of old sweaters. This is it!


I love the idea of adding a flower!! Also, the extra seam on top for shape is too too smart...when killing old sweaters in the past I never thought to do that and the shape was alright but not great. Time to do more surgery!


Way too cute. How simple. Love it.

Mami Made It

Wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

Teddy Started It

Love it! I've got a stack of old sweaters and now I know what to do with them. Thanks!


Cute hat, darling model!
