I Had This Idea . . .

I wanted to knit a 20's style cloche.  So I went to Ravelry and looked for a pattern.  I found some patterns but they weren't quite right - in fact, they were all wrong. 
So I decided to write my own pattern.
This is the first attempt at it and while I like this hat, it isn't quite right yet.
Girl Far From Home will wear this one and I will alter the pattern where I think it needs to be altered.
I have already started to knit the next one . . . more later.

Very chic! Is it felted?

If you did one of the test knits in red with purple stripe, your mother would wear it.

Or I could be a test knitter for you and make one in Red and Purple and give it to your mother.
Why would I volunteer to test knit for you for free AND then give the test knit object to YOUR mother. Cause I am oh so nice.

The revised version is knit - same colors - and I like it a lot. I do need a test knitter or two, so I will take you up on your offer. We can pick up the yarn when you are here. It is a quick knit - started the second hat last night at nine and it is finished, felted and drying. It takes longer to dry than to knit. Pics tomorrow maybe.
