So here it is. The last of my trio of chapeau. My hat-trick is complete.
This is Sweetheart G's crocheted cloche, made following the same pattern as Little e's. (Oh I love a project that can be completed in an evening and loved so tremendously.)
I used a "hand painted" style washable wool made by Cascade. I love the colors. Sweet G loves the hat, and looks lovely in it, but I am not in love with the pattern. It is a bit too bucket-y and not quite cloche-y enough. It has a habit of poofing up on Sweet G's noggin, instead of setting flush. If I make more of these, I'll have to play more with the increases or just find a better method.
Still, one evenings effort inspiring so much joy is a pretty sweet deal. (She's been wearing it so non-stop that I haven't had a chance to weave in the ends, thus the trailing bit of yarn.)
