I made this last fall. It's a snug little cloche. I wanted to do something off-center and aerodynamic. I played around with sewn and knitted flowers, beads and embroidery. It's a little small but it's fun to wear and goes with a lot of my stuff.
Bex from True Blue Fiber Friends asked me if I would knit another top hat to sell at the store. Here is the result. This has a rolled rather than a flat brim. Rose is modeling it just outside True Blue. She could roll the brim up a bit if she wanted to. I think it looks great with long hair. Although Lucy Neatby tried it on with her beautiful wildly colored hair and it looked great. It’s a wonderfully warm and cheerful hat to wear during the winter while waiting for spring.
