    Wow what a cute idea. I love it and would fit perfect on my branches in my livingroom. How many stripes you´ve used ? Thanks for this great tutorial ♥

    @Tatjana R. Good to hear that! We’re happy that you’re going to use our tutorial. For each hat we used one strip. You’ll get five strips from one paper roll. Good luck! :)

    I found it was easier/slightly cuter to use wool in different colours. It was softer as well! So cute tho :)

    your instructions are fantastic. I am 80 with arthritis in my hands and fingers {other joints too) so the actual work is difficult but my spacific problem is getting the yarn to pull down tight enough. its puffy looking. when you make your loop and pull the yarn through it does the knot (thats just my word for it} sit inside on the inner part of the t.p. roll. Mine sits in the very rim . Thats why it looks puffy.I hab\ve baby showers and birthdays and next years christmas trees to decorate. Thanks for such a wonderful craft.
