Big Loop Knitted Hat Tutorial

29 08 2014 DIY

Oh I know I know...none of us want's to talk about fall and winter yet, but fact is, the nights are getting colder and the season change is lingering in the air.

But I have something for you to sweeten the farewell of summer:

A super cozy and chunky hat tutorial.

So fun to make and wear!

It's made of Loopy Mango Big Loop yarn which is available in my Shop or directly at Loopy Mango NY.

You can also use any other mega chunky yarn.

The pattern is similar to the Helsinki hat by Loopy Mango but less in height and I used much thinner needles, because I didn't have thicker ones.

This wool is just gorgeous and my goal was, not to waste even a tiny bit of this precious yarn.

So I wanted to get two hats out of a 36m skein - and it worked!

Here come the patterns for an adult size hat and a kids size hat with a fun bobble on top. 

For two hats you will need:

- About 36m of Big Loop Yarn

- A set of needles size 15mm/US size 19 ( if you have needles size 20mm/US size 36 and you want to use those, please keep in mind, that you might need more yarn)

If you want to use circular needles instead of a set there is a technique called "magic-loop-method".

Someone recently mentioned it to me in the comment section in one of my other tutorials. But I haven't tried that technique yet.

Ok! Let's start with the adult version (and of course you can also add the bobble to the adult version!!!)

Adult hat pattern 

Round 1: Cast on 18 Stitches 

The yarn length you need for casting on is about 3m. Don't pull too tight while casting on.

Generally it's better to knit this yarn fairly loose because you are using small needles for this size of yarn. The yarn needs to be able to breathe a bit.

Make sure there is no twist when you connect to a loop.

Have You Heard About...

31 07 2014

It is a new ecommerce platform that will leverage the audience of tastemakers to drive sales for the maker economy.

Well - as a maker myself (not on though YET - but I am considering...) I have to say: That is a dream come true for every maker!

Because all you want to do as a creative person is to make things.

But in reality - if you create for a living - you can't just be creative.

Or let's say - you have to be very creative in additional 10 jobs to make that dream come true.

You have to be a great salesperson as well. And a media specialist, and a bookkeeper, and an office administrator and organisator, and a nerd and a marketing strategist, and a market analyst and and and...

Puhhh... and all you originally wanted to do is drinking cups of tea and creating neat stuff in your little dreamy backyard workshop studio.

So it's a great thing that connects the dots between makers and tastemakers who help to spread the word about creative makers and their products to their audience by creating exclusive boutiques with handpicked items from those makers.

This time, I find myself on the 'other' side by being a tastemaker on with my own little curated boutique.

If you like Lebenslustiger aesthetics here on my blog or my Pinterest boards, chances are, you'll also like my choosen selection in this boutique.

Take a look and be inspired... 

A few of my favorites from my boutique:

Arrow necklace by Julian and Co
