Balls to the Walls Knits: Iris Bloom Bonnet ~~ The yarn is fabulous, but I really like the shape. For some reason, it reminds me of the beautiful Dutch caps Scarlet Johansson wears in the film “Girl with a Pearl Earring”
I finished this hat to give to my uncle this Christmas. He's a fisherman, and I think it's oh so appropriate! I tried it on and have decided that I will need one too (knit in the next size down) once I'm finished with all the other gifts I've planned.
This textured hat gives the perfect amount of slouch for cozy casual look. The knit-purl patterning beautifully highlights a solid worsted weight yarn. An optional button can be added to tack down the slouchy fabric.
