My Lock Nest Hat

This is a picture of the Lock Nest Hat, design by Teri Barr, featured in Interweave Felt Magazine 2007 edition. Teri Barr designed this hat for one of her students dreadlocks! I fell in love with this hat immediately! The model they chose is just too cute, and I love the look with braids. I decided I had to have this hat to wear at this year's Taos Wool Fest.

Here is my finished hat before felting! I really needed a smooth knit on big needles project!
And here it is after it's finished!!

This hat is so awesome!! I get a good feeling while wearing it.

I can't wait to try it out with braids!! And hey! Just a side note of some excitement for me...I got chosen to be one of the featured artists on My Art Space this month!! Woot! Woot!

OMG that closeup of the top of your head and the hat is awesome! That should be your Rav avatar.

I'm impressed. I really thought you were crazy when you said you liked this hat but you rock it baby.

Don't like the hat on the model, but I LOVE yours! You should be the new model for that hat cause that style looks way better on you! Oh, and you chose great colors, I like the stripes better than the solid color. I can see this selling very well with the hippies if you were to make some for sale! Nice Kelly! Btw, you are beautiful!
