Vogue Wide Brimmed Hat
Just off the needles. A Vogue Wide Brimmed Hat that I first saw on Days at Buttermilk Cottage. Susan has a wonderful etsy shop and, if you are not a knitter, she has this hat available WITH a sassy red flower on the side!! Hers is gorgeous! Made me run right out and get supplies to make my own. Hers is a bargain, I might add! Susan, thank you so much for the inspiration! Love being inspired by my blog friends!!
If you knit, the pattern is available on the Vogue Knitting, here. I used Brown Sheep Co, Inc's Lambs Pride Super Wash Bulky in Combustion Grey and Finch. If I were to make it again, I would use a bit heavier yarn.
I love the big ole brim.
And the curve...
But, I have to confess. This little dragonfly is not just for looks. My brim is a bit too soft to stand on its own: reason that I would use a bit heavier yarn with the right size needles to get a stiffer outcome.
But, I like him perched on the side and it will keep my head warm tomorrow as the COLD is on its way back! I'm grateful for the warm days we have enjoyed over the weekend!
I am joining Kim at Savvy Southern Style for her Wow Us Wednesdays party. She has kindly made a place for those of us who are decoratingly challenged. ;)
Happy days to each of you...
