Original Pattern: Marigold
Knitter Extraordinaire: Eliza (Ravelry Id, Blog)
Mods: Knitted the brim flat, added short rows at the crown to help with the slouchy fit, added a functioning button hole and button, increased stitches for a slouchy fit. For all the great details on this mod, check out her project page here.
What Makes This Awesome: Sooo…. you may have noticed that the Julie in Julie’s Chapeau is totally me. When I visited Eliza in Chicago a couple months ago, she very generously knitted me this gorgeous hat while we were hanging out over the weekend. I actually attempted to make one just like Eliza’s (her mod is so successful, if you go to the projects page you’ll see there are a few that decided to copy the mod as well), and it is technically on the needles somewhere in a cardboard box right now, but now that I have this gorgeous hat, it’s the one I wear every day now that the weather is chilly. I absolutely love it- it’s an awesome mod, and a perfect chapeau indeed. Thank so much, Eliza!!
