BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Tuesday, 17 November 2009
I was thrilled to snag a copy of Carina Spencer's (Sweet Mama Small Sugar) Bel Cloche hat pattern.

I had purchase some lovely Willow BFL in 'Mercado' ~ Rowan picked it and it totally reminds me of the old Fruit Chiclets!

Carina's pattern is lovely~ easy to follow, not too complicated, while offering some very pretty patterning (like the lace brim).

The result is very pretty, but a little on the large size (totally my fault, didn't do a gauge swatch and I am a novice with circular kntting ~ learned Magic Loop for this).

I guess big is better than small, right?Reminds me of this Fat Albert character:But roll up the brim and it isn't so bad!

I think this would be lovely done in a light cotton for the summer, too. Maybe the right size, next time!

Yep, too big is definitely better than too small. With too small, you're pretty much stuck giving it away to a younger/smaller head, ripping back and starting over, or just crying...

It was a beautiful hat, and I agree, big is better than small :))

Have a nice day :))

Fruit Chicklets!! I'm look for those for my Dad for Christmas. Let me know if you know of a source. Love the hat! Knitting is prozac for women of finely integrated intellect and emotion. - at least from a dog's perspective. Hey I don't even have thumbs.
drop by my place. Say hey.
