I was on such a high after seeing how nicely Yesterday's Hat turned out... that I decided to update another one! Plus, it's the perfect excuse to show off some more photos of Little Miss Charlotte...
The Original Hat was a gift from one of my Crochet Buddies. Julie did a beautiful job when she made it, and Charlotte has had a lot of wear out of it.... but it was getting to be that little bit too short to really stay on properly.
It really only needed an extra couple of rounds added to it, and I then finished off with a spike stitch in dark purple. I was happy with the new fit, but the look wasn't really inspiring me. You can see from the photo below that it's nice enough - but just a bit too blandish...
So I figured it needed an embellishment of some kind. I tried stars and hearts and button clusters, but none were quite right... then I ended up back with the basic flower!
Plus a button.
And some simple embroidery.
Look - We're nearly walking!
