This sewing project upcycles a sweater into a hat with multiple styling options. Construction is simple, but pleats and top ties add sophistication and improve fit, while the optional embellishment adds a feminine touch.

Required Materials:

— Look for a gently loved knit sweater
with a ribbed lower edge with a
12" minimum width, in cashmere,
lightweight merino, or a soft blended
NOTE: The ribbed edge must have at
least 20% stretch. To test your knit,
measure and mark a 5" horizontal
section. By gently stretching, the fabric
should expand to 6". If the fabric is less
flexible, add 1/2" seam allowance to the
hat pieces.

18" circumference × 6 1/2" high
