There is something spectacular about Bells of Ireland. They are tall, stately flowers with lovely cupped petals. They have multiple flowers that flow from base to tip. Known as a “lucky” flower, I decided that they were a wonderful inspiration for a hat. Hopefully you to will enjoy the stately cables and lace columns of this lightweight hat inspired by Bells of Ireland.
