I love the tv show, Downton Abbey! The two characters of Sybie and Marigold are especially darling! I can just picture them in one of these hats! This hat is knit in worsted weight yarn, with an added optional ribbing to keep the hat on baby’s head. After felting, these can be personalized to fit any style! Go crazy with neon colors and buttons, or keep it simple with a muted color and plain ribbon. The options are endless!
