barn coat hat

Liberty of London squares – I’m starting my first quilt!
Barn Coat Hat in wool to match this coat.
A simple hat but made of beautiful materials. Soft, organic wool from Swans Island Yarns. Even though the hat is really soft, I’d like to add a lining for extra warmth. My attempts at sewing one to the hat have been unsuccessful. I set up Fiber Hacker – a site to get help with all things fiber related – knitting, sewing, weaving….. Please visit if you have any thoughts on lining a hand knit hat.
