Nouveau Cloche Pour Moi

I never used to wear hats. Never. I did not like them & I did not like the way they looked on me. Of course I used to go out in the dead of a Connecticut winter without even a sweater - which I no longer do either! As I have gotten older I have found that I prefer to be a bit warmer than I used to like to be. I am, even now, VERY picky about the few hats I will condescend to wear. I knew what look I wanted but had not found a pattern for it. Recently,however, while idly surfing I discovered the PERFECT pattern. It's called the Stella Cloche from PieKnits. I just had to try making one & I have to say I am very pleased with this hat. I may felt/full it a bit more - and I might even make another one ! It's wide enough in the brim to look the way I like it to, it's extra warm because of the fulling/felting & it can be tweaked with embellishments if you want. Thanks PieKnits for having just what I was looking for !

Looks like a great hat. I'm like you, don't like them on me.
