Sometimes Ugly Changes

ugly hatUsing up odds and ends from basket beside the chair (my knitting and crochet station), I made this hat of whatever for my friend who asked for an ugly hat for a gift exchange. One of those white elephant things. Some of the yarn is knitted worsted weight, some is bulkier (Light n Lofty), and some was fingering weight (though I mixed it--the green with another light weight blue). As you can, no rhyme or rhythm for the colors either.
crocheted ugly hatTo add to the ugly, tacky, weird, funky............whatever, I added bows that don't match. I used purple and tangerine bows, there is no purple or tangerine in the hat. I used black curly things as well. After all, I had a pile of them needing to throw out, so why not throw them in for contrast. LOL

My friend actually ended up thinking it was cute, vs ugly. But, it will serve the purpose anyway. Talk about fun to make! What's the ugliest thing you've knitted or crocheted?

  1. Hmm....definitely a conversation piece...lol.

    I can't think of anything ugly that I've knitted because if I don't like it, it doesn't get knitted and that includes requests from family members.

  2. WELL, IT WASN'T UGLY BUT IT SURE LOOKED FUNNY. WHEN I HAD MY FIRST DAUGHTER I DECIDED TO CROCHET A SWEATER SET FOR HER IN PRETTY PINK, IT WAS SO LOPSIDED, THE SLEEVES DIDN'T MATCH, IT WAS SOMETHING OUT OF I LOVE LUCY. I'VE GOTTEN A LITTLE BETTER. YOUR HAT IS CUTE. RIZZI
