Valentine Freebie #2 - Flower Pot

And here you have it - spring in an upturned flowerpot!

It's a bit like a fez too, isn't it. You could make it long enough to have a dent and give you more height if you wanted to go for Henry's look:

What I love about this hat is the top. Biscotte & Cie's colours are even more rich in the tight texture of rice stitch gone circular.

Happy Valentine's Day! And now I'll get back to my knitting.

Update: another view of the hat, from Louise at Biscotte & Cie. I think the ladybug buttons make it, don't you?

Another update - Biscotte's web shop features the hat (and necessary yarn) here (post-doll-knitting) and it's so beautiful! Makes me want to make one even though I already did :^)

Hi I want to make your hat but just wondering what ply your yarn is?

Mary Keenan said...

Midnight_girl, I'm pretty sure the ply was 3, but the weight is pretty close to Aran. The yarn I used is discontinued now but if you can get gauge with a nice squishy yarn (mine was an especially elastic wool) you'll be fine.
