Fo Friday - Pretty purple hat

I promise this will be the last hat I show for a long little while (I do love hats!) This one was another Christmas present, this time for my lovely wee niece Eva. I wanted it to be purple as I just loved this yarn and I thought a pretty white flower would look really good with the purple. What do you think?

I was also really pleased with how the top of the hat came out, believe it or not it was a mistake, I had been working on the hat late at night to get it finished and didn't read the pattern correctly and this is what happened

The only problem is I don't think I'll be able to recreate it as I have no idea what I did, oh well Miss Eva has an Auntie Sam original!

Well I'm off to check out Tami's blog and see other Fo's!

  2. Very cute hat, I love the top - shame you don't know what you did! The flower sets it all off perfectly :)

  11. Hooray for happy accidents---I looove the top of the hat, it looks like a flower! The hat is just all-around lovely, the colour is perfect and the white flower is darling.

  12. Love the flower! And favorite.

  13. I love the purple. The little flower is a super great touch too. I agree, it's frustrating when you do something but can't remember how you did it for the next time. Truly custom made.
