Now Add a Brim

Posted on: July 7, 2012

Floppy-brimmed Orchid Hat

I had already figured out that really big flowers were a hit when I started this hat. So what could I do to make this one a little different?  Well, summer was coming and that sunshine is awfully bright for little ones so maybe a brim would be good!  This one is in a slightly different stitch than the body of the hat which helps to distinguish it as a “brim”.  I still put on a flower but this time I trimmed part of the flower and the edge of the brim with a varigated crochet thread.  I love it and so does everyone at the coffee shop.  Hope you will too!

The variegated color trim makes this stand out! Love it.

Tiny little hook and stitches but I think it is worth it. 🙂

About Summer

I have been knitting, crocheting, sewing and embroidering since childhood. It is great fun to combine many of these activities in handcrafting hats and other apparel for wee ones. I'm delighted that you have found my site and hope you enjoy browsing through my latest creations.

Most of the hats are made with 100% cotton. Prices range from $25 to $35 depending on time required in making that design. I also custom design hats and other apparel for special occasions or to match the colors of your favorite team. Just let me know what you have in mind!
