I ended last night with some plain ribbing—and I am still thinking about what I am going to do for the band.. (A tuck I think!) and then the brim.
The little pill box stretches out nicely—here on HEAD—and on my bowling ball head too—where the lace design is even more open.
It's a happy little hat.. I am still not sure if this is going to be the final version—I like the fagoting lace much better—but I keep thinking—I could do better than this.. I could...
Well I have LOTS of cotton—not just the Grace, but Tahki/Stacy Charles cotton, Lane, some Cleo Egyptian cotton, and others. (see below, right)
Most of my collection of Grace cotton is left overs with just one or two balls. They are left over from this--a size 4 cotton jacket for my granddaughter (now a tween!) knit many years ago.
So for now, its back to work-making this idea for a hat work!
