Now that this year’s Mystery Hat-a-Long is over, it’s safe to share some photos of this year’s Hat – Lifted!This slouchy bonnet style Hat uses a lovely dip stitch for patterning, which I learnt as ‘Embroidery Stitch’. I’ve had a bit of a thing for dip stitches of late, I rather like the way they play with hand dyed yarn. And of course, they manipulate the surface of the fabric which as we all know is a thing of mine.

The video below will guide you through how to do the stitch and at some point in the future I’ll get a photo tutorial added, too.
