Ewelie, named after Windy Knitty’s delightful mascot, is worked from the top down with worsted weight yarn held doubled. The tweedy effect in the bordered brim is created by holding together one strand each of the main color and the contrast color yarns. Extended stitches are used for a fabric that is slightly more flexible than standard single and double crochet. Add a flower or button adornment for a finishing touch. Instructions for the Wee Flower are included.

These expanded instructions include an optional modification for a flared brim and full instructions for a single-strand worsted weight version with a main color crown and a solid (not tweedy) contrast color brim.
