Well. This wonderful Russian woman out in Greenpoint Brooklyn has opened this shop that is just incredible. It's stark and emptyish & in the middle of nowhere but full of beautiful knits. She had this hat on display and I put it on and now I have been trying to make it. (couldn't afford it) But mine looks weird and I don't think it's going to turn out like hers.
It's almost like a doll bonnet or something, it's just shaped unusual. The back is a bit longer than the front. It looks moreso in person than in this picture. Very very old fashioned, like 1930s Russia.
Here is the link. Am I being silly and this is really easy to make?
(I've made a lot of hats) Check out some of her other stuff too, realy gorgeous simple luxurious knits. (I might go back and ask her for a pattern)
