I was looking for a hat with style, not cutesy but whimsical. Whimsy is my middle name, right? (those who know me are gagging) I saw a gal in a hat that was knit in alternating bands of stockinette and reverse stockinette so it looked horizontally ribbed, but it was brown so it rather resembled a large cow pie.... I wanted more structure.
This is what I came up with:
They are on etsy, and I just finished one that's red with white hearts. Fingers crossed!
By the way, my sulky model was not best pleased that I made her stand in the rain in hats....oh well, such is the price of being my kid!
