let's knit a hat


Check out my new hat pattern in Let's Knit's current issue.

Inspired by the 20s style cloche shape.
Flippy, girly, pretty and knitted in hemp, which was a bit of a pain to work with, but gives a lovely summery, straw-like finish.
You could also use cotton if you can't find any hemp, or any other new tough plant fibre you can find.

Oh, that is so summery and cute! And very, very unique!

thank you! :)
shame the weather isn't summery to match... it's funny how quickly we get used to the sun, even though it isn't natural may/june temperatures!

Thanks stephanie, that's lovely to hear, especially as your blog is such an inspiration since I have been reading it - i am inspired to slow down and enjoy the little things more, a lesson i have been long trying to learn...
and i'd love a kiss necklace, i shall tell them to give you commission! :)
