Yahoo, I just love hats!!! And I love color work to spice it up. This hat was made at the request of a friend, expecting her second in January. I put it off so long (she asked back in October!) and I JUST managed to finish it, hopefully she will receive it before the birth, as it is to go with the baby's going home outfit.
It is a basic little hat with a bit of 1x1 ribbing, then some very simple colorwork to match the outfit. I made it up as i went along.
The brim seems to like to be folded, and I think it would be good worn either way.
And here is the outfit...
Here, Hugh graciously offered to model the hat for his future bud.
Here is a side view, to show the colorwork on top...
And here Hugo is showing how it looks good with the brim folded up. Also, he is apparently whistling for a taxi.
