This hat is named after “Queen of the Milliners” Caroline Reboux (1837-1927) who – in addition to her hat-related innovations – divided half her profits among the lead cashier, workroom director and other women in her employ. She is perhaps best known for inventing the felt cloche hat. See http://tinyurl.com/reboux for more info on her!
Knit then felted, this pattern includes multiple variations and sizes, just right for the knitter who likes to customize. It takes less than 1 skein of yarn, too! Pattern includes instructions for provisional long tail cast on and special felt finishing techniques.
