Another weekend, another hat
A Better Bucket Hat
Yarn: Alpaca with a Twist, Baby Twist in Purple & Plymouth Baby Alpaca DK in Turquoise
Needles: US size 6
Mods: To make it Maggie sized, I used DK weight yarn, size 6 needles, and I didn't make the hat as deep as the pattern specifies.
The flower is the 5-Petal Flower available here.
I think I'd like to block the brim a little to enhance it's flare. I, maybe, should have switched from the contrast color under the brim to the main color a round sooner, but I sort of like the row of turquoise purl bumps at the bottom. I think I want to make one for me next. Black with something bright under the brim, maybe orange.
