Hey fellow craftsters!
This is the very first hat I ever knitted and I'm a bit proud of it. I got the book "boutique knits" as a christmas present and couldn't wait to try this pattern. Though I had to use a different yarn, it turned out quite well, I think. I imagined the yarn to be more grey than beige when I ordered it on the internet, but well. I hope the hat doesn't make me look like a granny in this color?! :/

Hey, neat!  I love the twist in the back!  I don't think you qualify as granny material . . .  maybe in 20 years or so?  Smiley  Nice work!

Thank you addicted Smiley I'm glad you say so!

Another photo:


With the twist worn like this, I think it looks a bit like a hat from the charleston era, doesn't it?

knitting_girl, it's a really good book, I think. Four hats, several purses and totes, as well as some overgarment patterns... Some of the projects contain felting, as well. The patterns are all pretty classy, but I think you can tell that by the name "boutique knits" Wink
The only thing I don't like about the book is that it suggests to use very expensive yarns. merino wool, baby alpaca, silk etc. That is why I didn't use the suggested wool.

i have this book and it's amazing!  i love how much the designer combines felting with non-felted parts of garments and adds all kinds of notions that you do not typically see in knitting.  i am actually working on the hat on the cover of the book.  i will post soon when its done!
