This hat was intended to be Phannie by Berroco.  I've tried that pattern a couple of times, and no matter how perfect my swatch is, that darn thing never comes out right!  It's always too small.

So I modified it a bit, and came up with this.  I like this hat better than the generic beret I was planning on making!  It can be worn slouchy (my preferred way) or like a beanie, although it's a little long.

The orange is Paton's new Angora Bamboo in Sienna Bronze.  OMG amazing yarn.  So soft.  The green is Vanna's choice in Olive, I think.  Not definite on the color.  I lost the label.

Sorry for the less than stellar pics.  I'm at work, and only have my MacBook.  I'll try to get some better ones when I get home.


Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

Wow, you did a great job modifying that pattern, very creative!  And just in time for Halloween too. I love the way you did the stem and the "curly Q's".  Great job.  This Rocks!
