Faux fur hat
I was at the Knitters Studio a few months ago http://www.theknitters-studio.com/ and saw a great hat. It was knit in a k2 p2 rib and had faux fur yarn crocheted into the edge of the hat. It looked a little like this hat.
I wanted to make it, but was not ready to spend $29 for the 17yds of fur yarn (Plymouth Yarn, Foxy). This past weekend another yarn store http://www.needhay.com/ had this yarn for 40% off! So, the hat is on the needles. I am using Debbie Bliss SoHo, 100% wool, color #37509 for the body of the hat. It is a little scratchy, but I adore the color blend.
