I've always loved to wear hats, which is convenient since my eyes are very sensitive to light. While I was in Macy's doing some New Year's sale shopping with my mom, I tried on a cloche hat because I thought it looked cool and discovered that I look OK in them. Sadly, it wasn't discounted enough to get, but I found a very nice pattern for them here. This is modified a bit because of a screw up and me being to chicken to try back post double crochet. I want to make a grey one, too, and I'll probably try doing the bumps with that. I really like the way they look.
Anyway, I finished this during game night and sat around at the table like an idiot wearing it. I love this hat! Mom had the flower pin on hand (it came with a shirt of hers and she didn't like it with the shirt) and I think it goes really well with the hat. She also has a purple and, if I remember correctly, a black one? I may also get a cream-colored ribbon to put around it, too.
I used Loops & Threads Impeccable worsted yarn in chocolate for this. ♥
