Pattern: Rolled Brim Chemo Cap, from Headhuggers.
Yarn: Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK
Notes: This is a beautifully soft yarn, and a simple and quick pattern. I improvised the flower using Kidsilk Haze and a crochet hook. The flower is attached to the hat with a safety pin, so the recipient can remove it if she wishes. I chose these colours for the flower as the recipient is a redhead, so I thought they should suit her.
What I learnt: I learnt that I am equally capable of producing uneven stocking stitch when working in the round as when knitting and purling… ho hum.
Anyway, here’s Winnie the Pooh, ably assisted by Piglet, demonstrating how the crochet flower could be worn as a corsage (how SATC of him!). I noticed while taking this photo that Pooh looks like he could use a new jacket. Another new project on the cards?
That is too cute.
What are you talking about woman?????
That gauge is perfect!! A lovely clean simple design too. Classy.
uneven? hm you must have supervision- its not visable to the normal eye!
its really a nice cap and love the flower too.
No, really, just because it doesn’t show up in the photos doesn’t mean it’s not uneven!
I really love the flower – nice idea to put the button inside it too.
And I am looking forward to seeing Pooh’s new jacket 😉
Love the hat – silk/wool sounds divine! And the flower is a great finishing touch.
(I thought perhaps Pooh needed a pair of bikini bottoms to go with his bikini top!!)
Ooh I am just imagining how divinely soft that must be. Love your little flower brooch, a very chic addition. I love the casualness with which you say you improvised this – I think if took a crochet hook and some KSH I would end with a tangle not a purty flower!
oooh lovely. What a beautiful detail that flower is! It suits Pooh a lot.
Very cute hat – and love the flower!
love the flower!! reminds me that someday i want to buy nicky epstein’s knitted flowers—would love to make whole bouquets of knitted flowers–altho’ i’m not sure for what…..
Lovely. I haven’t been knitting lately. I miss it and need to have a renaissance.
