As I have a load of buttons left over from when I had a Bead Shop, I thought I would take inspiration from those.
I grabbed three balls of Stylecraft DK Yarn in Gold, Emerald and Saffron, and got to work.
And I have to say... although it is not something I would wear myself... I do rather like it!
Of course, you always need to see a hat modelled on a head, and as I hate my photo taken I talked my dear Mother into popping it on her head for a photo (with the usual warning, "This will be used on Social Media" as I snapped away)
The Pineapple buttons really finish it off I think, don't you?
There was plenty of yarn left after the hat - and the plan it to turn these into kits - anyone fancy a Pineapple Hat? - so I thought I should add some added extra and make a pair of wristwarmers too.
Voila! Pineapple wristies!
And together they make a might fine set, cheery enough to brighten up any old miserable winter day.
Now, what shall I make next? I have Pawprint buttons, Watermelons, Ladybirds, Carrots! Be prepared for some more mad designs coming soon :)
In the meantime, I will post a link once the Pineapple sets are ready to sell.
