Notes

re-made my modified marigold hat! gifted to julie. these pictures are placeholders.

-i cast on the number of stitches for the small hat
-i knit the brim flat
-i did two short rows at the front of the hat to set it back a little
-i added a three stitch button hole for the large button
-i added a little shaping to round off the edge of the button band (increase every row until the button hole, decrease every row until the band is done)
-i increased to the number of stitches for the large hat, and switched to US size 8 needles
-i knit the lace pattern for three repeats
-then closed it up per the pattern.
-wet blocked it over a plate to encourage slouchy qualities.
-i sewed the edge of the brim down just past the buttonhole so that it wouldn’t gap.
