This hat is a lightweight cotton hat. Wear your Mary Anne hat to look "cool" or wear it on a cool summer night..or even a bad hair day and look beautiful! It is flattering on any age! It is also an excellent hat to knit up for a chemo hat donation, as the wide brim fits the head like a soft hug!
Two brim versions are offered, one being a "Pink Plaid Illusion" design.
I named this hat in honor of my maternal grandmother, Mary Anne, who immigrated here from Nova Scotia many years ago.
5 sts. & 7 rows using a size 5 needle in stockinette stitch with DK weight yarn.
I am one of 2 sisters who share a love of knitting, dark chocolate and fine wine, not necessarily in that order! Our design name, Bellsisters, was born out of a hilarious mishap at Stitches West one year! You can read all about this embarrassing moment on Ravelry.com, under the profile of Bellsisterding OR bellsisterdebbie.
