Item Name & Description: Custom Hat in Washable Wool
The auction winner will get one hat made to any measurements from their choice of the yarns shown below. All are diVe Zenith, a machine-washable worsted-weight wool that is next-to-skin soft. There is enough purple and enough dark brown to make a solid hat out of either; other colors would have to be accent colors only.
This yarn will show cables and other fancy stitch textures well; I can also do color stripes and/or contrast ribbing (although stranded colorwork or intarsia will not be suitable). I can do the winner’s choice of ear-warming methods: a deep fold-up ribbing, earflaps with or without ties, a helmet style that comes down over the ears and back of the neck, or a beanie with none of the above. More technical details available upon request.

Starting Bid: $15 US
Notes: Yarn has lived in a non-smoking household with one dog; the finished item will get laundered just before shipping. I will mail anywhere in North America at no additional cost; for other continents I would ask the auction winner for an additional donation equal to shipping costs. Allow approximately four to six weeks for knitting after we work out a pattern.
Bidding is now open and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.
