“Knit” Hat

My first step was picking an article of clothing that was important to me. I picked a knit hat because I would describe my mom as an avid knitter. She is always knitting hats for her friends and family. I also thought that it would look very cool because yarn is very flopping and loose, which is the opposite of hard, moldable wire. To create this hat, I drew a sketch first. After, I thought it would be cool to actually knit the hat, just the way she does. I first chose thin wire in order to simulate yarn. Over the course of around two weeks, I knit the hat. When it was finished, I made a pom pom out of the same wire to put on top.

I now have a better understanding of how to use wire. I also have a better understanding of knitting. In the future, it would be cool to see a full size hat that could be worn. Or, when making a knit hat out of yarn, I could incorporate wire.

I worked hard in order to use the wire the same way one would use yarn when making a hat. I believe I did this well. However, I would probably make it bigger if I could do it again because I was anticipating making a floppy hat. Regardless, I am proud of the final product.

Normally, I do not think of knitting as creating a sculpture. So I learned to that sculpting can be any piece of art with a form. Sculptures can also be wearable art.

I faced a few challenges while completing this sculpture. It is hard to knit with wire because it is tough and molds easily, which makes it harder to move around. Because it molds easily, it becomes tight and sticks to the knitting needle. I just had to stay focused and make sure I paid attention to all of the stitches.

I worked hard in order to use the wire the same way one would use yarn when making a hat. I believe I did this well. However, I would probably make it bigger if I could do it again because I was anticipating making a floppy hat. Regardless, I am proud of the final product.
