Daisy has become a bit of a meme and her hats have moved up in the world with her. Why not throw another hat (ahem) into the ring? What we can glean: Daisy's hat is a beret (or tam). It's simple. The yarn looks vintage and the back of it seems to run in completely concentric circles. I've worked at making a reasonable knitted facsimile (of what could well be a crocheted original) using a comfy, stretchy finished edge, a differently patterned brim to frame your sweet face, and a jogless, clearly circled back. Note: Though knit at exactly the same gauge, the Pediboo yarn is slipperier and made a slouchier/heavier hat than the Nature Spun. The drapiness of the bamboo definitely affected the final product. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY increase, decrease, seed stitch GAUGE 4.5 stitches and 6 rows = 1 inch in seed stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS adult female head (20-22in) SUGGESTED YARN 250 yards of Sport weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport; Frog Tree Pediboo
