Flirtatious Felt Hat Pattern
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
This refined and smart hat is intended for upstairs women. Perky hats with an Austrian or Cossack feel had
an outdoor sporty appeal. High-crowned hats were tilted at a confident, flirtatious angle.
Knit this hat using larger-than-usual needles and then shrunken to the proper size by felting. For a few rounds,
half of the brim is knitted back and forth using short-rows to make one side longer than the other. Where a
band would be, a knitted Linen Stitch pattern essists at the base of the crown. Over it, an ornate cable band worked with a variegated silk/wool yarn that is added after felting.
