From Sally — Venetian Hat

Filed under: Gallery,The Venetian Hat — Sally @ 5:39 pm

I’m not quite sure how to describe this hat. While walking our dogs in a neighborhood park yesterday, a friend mentioned an “unusual” hat she had acquired one cold day in Venice. She couldn’t quite describe it — for good reason. Although she said it was knitted, it looks crocheted to me. According to my friend, whose anonymity I’m protecting, it drew stares even in Venice. It’s not an item for the faint of heart to wear. (My daughter agreed to model it; then again she suffered a minor head injury on her bicycle this afternoon.)

Without further ado (the photographs can be enlarged by clicking):

Sorry — I don’t have the pattern.
