#MakersWednesday: Channeling my Inner Crawley Sister

Posted By on Jan 14, 2015 in Handmade Love and Inspiration


Hello, and welcome to #MakersWednesday!

This week I’m channeling my inner Crawley sister with a knitted hat just for me. I’ve been working on a big project, and once that was finished I was ready to cast on for something new and quick. I had picked up the pattern for the Tempress hat when it was available as a limited-time free offer before the holidays, so I decided to cast on!

I am forever on the hunt for a hat that I actually like wearing – I don’t think I look good in hats like some women do, so one of my knitting goals this year is to knit a variety of hats of different types or styles to experiment with what I like and what I don’t. Since experience has told me that hats with a brim of some sort look better on me than more close-fitting beanies, I went with the cloche style of the Tempress. I used a tweedy teal yarn I got from Knit Picks in their mystery grab bag special, and trimmed it with an applied i-cord in tan, adding a button for a finishing touch.

Here it is:
