Hat Design and Expression – Aung Crown: Knit Hats
Do you know knit hats? The coarseness of the texture of hats made with woolen woven can evoke the wearer’s imagination about the surface fabric. What’s more, the performance of texture can represent the various touchings and styles – comfortable and warm, soft and skin-friendly, lightweight and stretchy. Moreover, all these features can provide the wearer with a relaxing sense that is wrapped around by blankets. Furthermore, it can show the warmness and safety of the styling.
Through different knitting ways and traditional hand-made ways, such as crochet ways, weave, inset, etc., to complete styles and patchwork. All these ways can achieve different visualizing or abstracting hat shapes.
Woolen hats are made and woven with soft woolen. Therefore, most woolen hats are soft, and cannot stay in shape like other hats. Moreover, most knit hats are closely tight to the head. The design is similar to straw hats. Namely, designing by adding ornaments, patchwork, hollow, embroidery, etc. In addition, the difference from straw hats is that woolen hats don’t need to be shaped. Therefore, there are various shapes of woolen hats without being limited by molding. However, with the coming of new materials and new crafts, there are new changes in the styles of woolen hats. For example, add plastic wire into woolen for weaving, then shaping by pressing by molding. So we can have a new shape and non-deforming hat.
