This Hat was inspired by Molly Ringwald as Andie in Pretty in Pink, with her quirky and individual style of dressing and her love of the colour pink! This Hat is knitted sideways on straight needles using short rows for shaping. The Hat is then joined together invisibly using kitchener stitch (grafting). The Hat is available in three sizes to ensure the perfect fit.
The lace panel and frilled brim hark back to the seventies and before that to mop caps of the Victorian era. It is also a fabulous stash buster using only 100 grams of yarn.
