A Garden of Fedoras
We’ve been wanting to develop a fedora pattern for quite some time. The fedora is part of The Animator’s trademark look for his retro gaming podcast, and we’ve been dying to create matching father-daughter fedoras for him and Little Lovely.
What makes this pattern special? We wanted to make a fedora that didn’t require any special shaping when the crocheting was done. No stiff wires or tricky blocking; when it’s done, it’s done. And we wanted to be sure to use one of Halos of Hope’s recommended yarns so that it could be used for chemo patients. They emphasize that soft is key, so unfortunately craft store acrylic won’t work for these hats. For this reason, we chose Cascade Cherub Aran for its washability and affordability.
We also added an optional daffodil for a more feminine look. The daffodil has long been the official flower for the American Cancer Society, symbolizing strength and courage.
