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.

I chained across the meeting line.

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.

  1. I just started working sprang, and i wondered how many wraps your hat was? 100 or so? I dont have enough experience to guess… 🙁 your hat is awesome! I wanted to make a sprang hat similar, but onky one layer. I am an experienced crocheter, snd want to make the sprag, close one end, seam the “tube” and crochet a brim on the ither end. I dont think it will be difficult, but i dont have any idea how many wraps/ thread pairs are enough… can you help?

    • By my records, it was 134 loops, and I used a thicker yarn.
      There are ‘patterns’ in my book titled Sprang Unsprung.
      Let me know how it goes.
