Well, have you ever found the PERFECT hat pattern, and made a dozen of them? I've finally found the perfect hat for me. It is the Jenny Cloche (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jenny-cloche).

I made Jenny#1 in December, to wear with a sweater I'd made.

This week, I've made 2 more Jenny's...to wear with 2 new sweaters I've made.

Anyhoo, here is Jenny #2, made with Rowan POLAR:

And here is Jenny #3, Crystal Palace TAOS Green #20.

Used CP Taos held double strands to get bulky gauge.

Here is Jenny #1, on my Teddy Bear (but he can't keep it!)

I am going to frog Jenny #1 tonight and re-knit it in the
smaller size down. This hat was just a teensy too big,
and I didn't know how much better the size sm would be
til I made Jenny #2 and #3 in the size sm. And I'm also
going to make that 'bow' shorter so it isn't as floppy.

I plan to model them for y'all on one of my better days! :teehee:

I've been feeling real 'sisty-ugler' these days.

Wonderful, as usual. Especially love the green one, but then I love anything green.

Although a cloche wouldn't be my style, on you it'd look great, I'm sure. You dress tre' chic anyway, from the pics you've posted.

Very nice hats ArtLady. I can imagine they are a nice style for you. I really like Jenny 3 too (someone else did too).

Sometimes my bangs are 'out', sometimes I pull the cloche down to my eyebrows and cram my bangs underneath!

Depends on how long my bangs are! :eyes:
