OK...Here is my Pin inspiration. I wanted to keep using that sweater....
I was lucky (and I wish I would have taken a picture of the sweater ..pre-chop)
but it had a great design around the neck...so I used that.
I used the collar for the band around the edge of the hat. It did have a re-do. I originally just cut a circle basically around the whole sweater neck and then a circle of the back panel for the top of the hat. It was cute but
looked more like a "rastafari" type of cool hipster hang hat. It was not the look that I was going for though.
so I cut "darts" and tightened up the main part, cut the circle much smaller and Bella was quite happy with it then.
I still have pieces of the sweater left. They are sort of small but I have a feeling they will resurface soon....hint hint.
Thanks for joining me and taking the time to read this.
