Tender is the Night

WARNING : DO NOT READ THIS POST IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS TO "TENDER IS THE NIGHT"

Here is my project for Knit the Classics.

According to One Skein Wonders: "Sartorial historians believe that the cloche was popular with 1920s flappers because of the proud gaze it required of its wearer - chin titled skyward and eyes peering down the nose."


Although the Warren girls aren't flappers, I thought they would appreciate this hat. It's the color of money, and they can wear it while looking down on Dick for not being one of them. This hat is specifically for Nicole - the black ribbon is for all the sadness in her life. I also like that it's slightly felted - it needed a little bit of roughing up to become what it is.




This is my first month participating in Knit the Classics, and I had a lot of fun!

So pretty!! I love the black bow! Thank you for the birthday wishes. I'm sure with a little more time you'll feel comfortable modifying patterns too. All it takes is an understanding of what the different parts of the pattern are and a good visual of what you want your end product to look like. Happy knitting!!!!

Well I just love your hat, thanks for leaving me a comment to let me know what pattern you used. I keep thinking I need to add that book to my library, now I'll have to give it yet another look!
