View Full Version : Help with yarn sub for hat

02-05-2007, 12:36 PM
I saw this (http://shazzaspatterns.blogspot.com/2006/02/muse-hat.html) hat and wondered...if I wanted to make a lighter-weight hat for summer, could I sub an equally gauged 100% cotton yarn for the wool yarn she used for this hat? Or would the cotton yarn not have enough stretch to lend itself to a comparable finish? :shrug:

Maybe linen?? Or a linen/soy blend?

:figureditout: BAMBOO!!!!

Oooooo.......I hadn't even THOUGHT of bamboo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :drool: :woohoo: That's a GREAT idea Hildie!!!! :notworthy: I just finished this hat this morning, but I need to redo it so that it's deeper (it was a little bit short for my preference), so I may just forego redoing it in wool and go straight to bamboo! Thanks!!! You enabler! :teehee:
