Hagatha's Hat

I have always stayed away from Just Nan's designs. There are just too many fiber colors and sooooo putzy. However, when I went to my LNS last week, her new design, Hagatha's Hats caught my eye. There is 2 hats pictured on the front of the pattern, a purple one and a orange one. It tells you on the back which one is in the package. Be watchful of this. I, of course, got the purple one.


This is just way too cute! The picture on the pattern nor the picture here does not do it justice. This was great fun...even thought it was putzy.

2 things that I really appreciated about this design. It uses good old DMC floss--no fancy fibers. The other is the fact that the finishing instructions are wonderful. They are very clear and concise. No questions.

You can't see too much of it but I did get a small pumpkin at Joann's for this hat to sit on. I love it!

Now on to my next project. Not sure what that will be!

Have a great weekend!

How funny ~ I haven't bought a Just Nan in over ten years for the same reasons but 3 weeks ago, I bought the 'orange' design of this hat. It's just too cute!

How funny ~ I haven't bought a Just Nan pattern in probably at least 8 years for all the same reasons but I did buy this one in ORANGE about 3 weeks ago. It's just too cute!
