Glam Rock Ski Hat, aka Vince's Tundra Hat

Here's the finished Glam Rock Ski Hat, I had fun needlefelting lightning bolts onto the earflaps! I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky to make the outline (just winging it by eye), then filled in with more yarn. I then added some BFL fibre on top.



More pictures on Flickr.

I used two patterns for this hat, mostly the Amelia hat from the SnB calendar, and also Woolly Wormhead's Scrappy Flapper.

Update 6th April 2008:

I have written up my pattern notes and made them available as a PDF.
