Dorothy's Red Hat

Despite the hours spent knitting Peter's sweater on the weekend, I did manage to finish Dorothy's red hat.
It was so much fun to knit. An easy-to-follow pattern and a quick knit. A perfect antidote to the monotonous, dark grey, plain, stockinet sweater requested by Peter.

The hat is delightful and will be even more so if I can find a chunky purple decoration for the side. This is Bonnie Marie Burns pattern - Felted Bucket Hat, knit 100% according to pattern with red Rejuvenation yarn. Felting time was 10 minutes. I love it. Thanks for the inspiration, Sharon.

I *love* it!! I think maybe I will knit one for my mom - she loves hats and RED.

The hat is beautiful. I have had this pattern in my queue for awhile but I don't know if I can pull it off.

It is very lovely. Hope you'll post a pic once you decided on the purple accent for the hat.

ok, the hat is alright, but the description of the unseen sweater: monotonous, dark grey, and plain?...to die for! Oh Yeah! Now that´s style....
