Lady Teresa Hat
This stylish hat is made with bulky yarn, making it a perfect quick knit. It is named for a gal in my Sunday afternoon knitting group, the Loopy Ladies. It is knit flat in seed stitch, then partially seamed and stitches picked up and knit in the round for the crown. A row of single crochet in a contrast color is added to the bottom edge of the brim to add interest. A button. vintage pin or knitted flower may be added above the notch at the nape of the neck. It can be purchased thru Ravelry.
