Green sprang hat

It’s minus 14 outside today, and there’s a fresh blanket of snow. Time for serious winter clothes.
I set me a figure-8 warp, 30 inches long (70cm) and wove until it met at the middle. OK, I added some S and Z design to keep things interesting.

The loop ends were gathered together, and I sewed the whole thing into a long tube or football shape.

One end of the ‘football’ was tucked into the other end.
