A to Z Blogging Challenge-“H”- Hat

It’s H day! Today’s post is another one that I found in my book called Generation T: Beyond Fashion: 120 New Ways to Transform a T-shirt. Obviously I love this book and its predecessor: Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt. Check them out on Amazon.

This is the mohawk mo’ rock! hat from Page 200-201 in the book. I didn’t cut this from a t-shirt so I just guesstimated the measurments by using a winter hat that I already had. This is not meant to be a complicated project, just something quick and fun. So don’t overthink it.

Two pieces of stretchy knit fabric folded in half and cut in the shape of a jellyfish. 😄 You can see from the photo that it is about 25″ long from top to bottom and the top is about 13″ at it’s widest point on the top when open.
Open both pieces of fabric and pin them with like sides together around the rounded part. This is the top of the hat.
Cut the long wide piece into three small equal strips. Poke small holes around the top part that is pinned about 1 & 1/2″ apart. (Only cut holes into the rounded part). Don’t cut holes too close to the edge.
Cut fabric strips from the same fabric or pick a contrasting one. They should be about 1 & 1/2″ wide by 5″ long. Cut enough to match the number of holes you cut around the top of the hat. Next, fold each strip in half and push that looped end through a hole. Pull the two ends through the loop to create a knot that wraps around the edge and will connect the two sides of the hat together. (I hope that remotely makes sense).
Now braid the three long strips on each side and tie a secure knot at the bottom.
Your hat is finished. Rock on!
Side view. Isn’t this a fun hat? I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
