Have you ever tried adding an iron-on patch to crochet (or knit) work? I only ever exceeded in shrinking the work until I came up with this method. This is the perfect way for adding that extra special touch to your handmade gift.
The hat pictured is my Ruby Turban, but rounds 10-15 are worked in the back loop only to create some texture. It was made with Caron Simply Soft Party in Teal Sparkle.
Ruby Turban with Iron-On Patch
After you've made your hat (or blanket, or scarf, etc.), you'll need the following supplies to add an iron-on patch to it.
- iron-on patch
- felt that matches your yarn as closely as possible
- needle and thread that matches the felt
1. Following the directions for the iron-on patch, adhere it to the felt.
That's it! It takes a little more work than just ironing the patch on, but the end result is totally worth it!
