A friend asked me to make a hat for her aunt who is facing chemo. Her aunt’s favorite color is purple and she’s into “bling.” So here is what I came up with.
My friend provided the materials and the “center” of the flower is actually a purple pendant which is designed to be worn on a necklace. I had to improvise by sewing it on with yarn through the metal loop that would hang on the chain. Other than being heavy, it turned out good, I think. And I heard that the woman who received it really liked it. I’m thinking of making another one out of lighter material, maybe one of the “sparkly” yarns which should appeal to her love for bling…and be a bit cooler for the summer weather.
The pattern was one from Annie’s Attic that I used to make hats this past winter.
