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 :^)
