Project Yarnway Feb Challenge

I finished it! 

 

I am really not good at sewing, so this one was difficult for me.  I thought the flat knitted piece pretty cool.  I love the cables!

 

After blocking it, I pinned it to paper to cut out a pattern for the fleece and the fur. 

I would have liked to go only with the fur,  but it had a very thin back, and that hat would bot have been very warm.  I cut the fleece using the pattern.  That was the hardest part for me!  The fleece was stretchy and my scissors were dull and I kept cutting to far into the fleece!!! It took three times to get it right!

 

When I cut the fur, I intentionally  made it larger than the fleece so I had room for a seam.  I sewed it to the fleece with thread and then sewed that to the knitting with the yarn.
