Another incarnation of the fab Gelsomina pattern from the Berocco website. This I made with Custom Woolen Mills 2 play and a 6mm crochet hook. It's all hooked up in one piece and then felted. Then cut the 'brim' off and apart to make the flower. This is still a little thick. I think I slightly finer gauge yarn will be perfect. I love this hat and the creation of it so much I will be making more! It's like one of those crazy hats from the 1940's. Love it! I started it on January 1st, 2009 and completed the hat (felting and sewing) January 4th, 2009 on a 6mm hook.
