Hat inspired by shirt

Pattern: Grammy' Hat
Yarn: Green Label Aran Weight in Chris Grey, Velvet, Seabreeze, Peacock and Olive

Whilst Christmas shopping in December I picked up this shirt for my brother Vince. I love a comfy long-john shirt and I was immediately drawn to these stripes. I just love the colour combo. If they made this shirt for women I'd buy it and my brother and I would look like twins. But I digress. Around that time, Vince had misplaced his favourite hat so I decided to make him a new one and to use this new shirt as inspiration! Worked like a charm. I'm so happy with how the hat turned out, and Vince loves it too!

This was a fun exercise, it combined colourways that I would never have combined on my own. Olive and Peacock? I never would have thought of it, but I love it! Inspiration is all around us!


  1. Oh wow these colors ARE amazing. I may have to put together something like this myself. I would have never thought to put those together either but it really does look great. Going to have to pin this so I can find it later when I finish my socks.

  2. That velvet is sooooo pretty!

  3. That is such a great idea!! The hat looks amazing, and your brother looks so jazzed about it!

  4. Love it! Since there doesn't appear to be a double brim, did you make the hat shorter? Thanks!
