Flapper hat

RickMartin's picture

No - not flap hat - flapper - think 1920's. I designed this for my wife but she hasn't been around when I had the camera out so my dog (Maggie) modeled it. It looks MUCH better on my wife!

It's a simple stockinette stitch. I did a 1x1 rib stitch for the band and then picked up the stitches along the band to do the hat. All 3 of us (dog included) thought it turned out pretty cool.

Oh... my... god that dog is adorable! You should probably knit your wife a new hat and let Maggie have that one. That is such a cute picture...

I bet if you walk Maggie with her wearing this hat, you will spend the rest of the year fulfilling orders!

Love the hat! Crazy about the dog! What a great model she is.

She's adore-able! She almost looks like she's enjoying the face time, too.

My Great-Grandmother was a flapper in Toronto; her hair was bobbed and she wore the hats and all. I can remember visiting her when I was growing up and seeing pictures and all sorts of huge gaudy costume jewelry and long strings of pearls that wrapped and wrapped around (faux of course). I could go on...

I really like that hat. It reminds me of someone very special.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Nice hat. And the tension doesn't look so bad after all. Lovely shade of red. I hope your wife enjoys it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
