Betty's Felted Bow

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on

Pattern Description:

I'll admit it; I have a soft spot for Betty. While Betty Draper Francis is the character most Mad Men fans love to hate, she has arguably donned some of the best costumes in the entire show. No respectable 1960's housewife would have left her home without a proper hat, so here's to Betty...a sweet, felted bow of epic proportions, perfect for wearing to a fancy dinner party. No work parties to attend? It makes a great accent for your handbag or scarf, too, and there's even a mini size included in the pattern that would be great to pop on a headband.
