Casting The Slytherin Hat

I have started to make this Slytherin hat using a graph and looking at how to make a snake. My golden snitches stitch markers are a great help. Stay tuned, this will be in color stranding as well.

Color Stranding Progress

I just wanted to show you the backside of this hat. Color stranding is not a hard technique to do, but it is a very detail oriented technique. You have to pay attention to what you are doing or you will end up with a new pattern lol! I am looking toward finishing this hat by the weekend. Even though It looks tight, the material has a great flexibility.
