If a bottle of wine is on your holiday gifting list, make a No-Knit Wine Bottle Topper Hat to give it some holiday flair. In this tutorial, which we first published over on PostStitch's blog, you will learn how to make this tiny little hat with a toilet paper role and scrap yarn. No needles necessary. Seriously.
- empty toilet paper roll cut into about 1" (2.5 cm) tall rings
- about 4.5 yards (4 m) of worsted weight yarn cut into (40) 12" (30.5 cm) lengths
How to Make a No-Knit Wine Bottle Hat
STEP 1: Work the Brim of the Hat
Using the Lark’s Head Knot technique, secure 39 lengths of yarn around the cardboard ring, making sure that each piece sits snuggly next to one another but does not overlap.
Continue until the entire cardboard ring has been wrapped (and it resembles a wooly jelly fish).
Step 2: Work the Body of Hat
Push all of the tails of yarn through the center of the ring until they all stick out.
