Designing is what I enjoy the most. Repetition is not something that I take pleasure in. Looking at the latest extreme fashions is one of my weaknesses and I love trendy clothing and accessories that are featured in magazines like Vogue and W. You canâ€™t help but fall in love with something new or an vintage style that is new again, like the flapper hats. When I came across the hat pictured I knew I had to try my hand at designing one similar. This is my design and I really like it. I crocheted it in fingering wool on a small hook in single crochet and then felted it. The feathers are somewhat different from the designer hat, but I believe they work.
