I swear they look like some magical cross between stained glass and hat crowns. And yes, I have totally toyed with the idea of making a hat to match at least one of them.
The tricky bit is that you’d need Rather A Lot Of Stitches to get that much detail in something the size of a hat, and you’d have to do something fairly clever to do the thing where you actually end up with five (or six…or seven…or more) different intensities of the color you’re using.
And that sounds hard. And time consuming. Whereas these are easy. And quick. And sometimes easy and quick wins the day.
(And yes, very soon here the book of instructions for these will be back out. In case you could also use some easy and quick and bright in a world that too often feels hard and dark.)
