My Band Sampler 158 – Stitch Explorer Trellis Stitch Hat – Detail 902 February 21st, 2009

Trellis Stitch HatWhen I was Stitching the tree I kept looking at my wonky pyramid and thinking that if it was round it would look like a hat…ummm a hat couldn’t be to difficult to do, actually it turned out to be very easy.

To stitch a Hat start by following Just String Blogspot’s Trellis Stitch Instructions and stitch 2 rows, decrease from the first row so that the hat brim sits flat on the fabric, stitch 2 rows without decreasing, then decrease to the centre of the hat crown, adjust number of rows in each section to make different sizes and styles of hat…decorate to taste, I used silk ribbon which I stitched on so that it wouldn’t slip of and then formed a bow by making a loop and hold it in place with a stitch and then making a second loop and stitch it in place, I then threaded the ends of the ribbon to the back.

Hats come in many styles and can be decorated in such a multitude of ways I would love to see any hats that others make so if you do make a trellis stitch hat could you drop back and leave a comment with a link to where we can see yours?
