Cap or hat

This all started on a facebook post when a few of the gals decided that they wanted to complete a hat to wear at Fringe.   It is done in a J&P Coats  ecru Size 10.  The pattern is by Jan Stawasz and in the model it fits down on the eyebrows. 

I have done a few of  his patterns before and knew that he pulls his chains really tight so I did this but still the pattern seemed too large.  I had to omit  the last row of chains and adjust those split ring rows to get  a fit. 

Someone had suggested that I make a lining but I found this no label ball cap and it made sense to attach the lace to it.  Now I need to finish by putting some embellishment on the brim.  

I will be wearing it this week.

  1. It's a cute hat and you'll look great in the red ball cap with ecru lace! Red looks good on everybody. :) Love it! I might 'need' to go dig out my books and try my hand at tatting that hat.

  5. I like the idea of putting embellishments to the brim it would give it a flapper look and that's fun!
