Fleur is a bonnet-style hat that features one row stripes, a ruched circular opening with a button at back, and ties embellished with crocheted flowers. It can be worn with the brim folded back (as modeled in 1st picture), or down, which creates a more casual hood-style hat. Hat is worked flat in one piece, and the million and one yarn ends usually associated with one row stripes are completely eliminated with a simple and fun technique. Pattern includes schematic with measurements of finished hat. Pattern calls for the following yarn: Drops Baby Merino - 100% Merino extra fine wool superwash; Fingering weight (191 yds/175 m per 50g ball). 1 ball of color 34 Heather, for MC 1 ball of color 01 White, for CC If substituting yarn, you will need approximately 65 yds (60 m) for MC, and 40 yds (37 m) for CC.

I've been blissfully obsessed with creating things since way back when my legs were too short to reach the floor while sitting at a table. I LOVE to knit (and sew, and have been meaning to learn a little more crochet...). Aside from my crafty obsessions, I adore books, audio books, feeding the people I love, colors, nature, playing outside, a good nights sleep, learning new things, daydreaming, pondering the ridiculousness of the world, nerdy history and science related books/shows/movies, how I feel after vigorous activity, finding new things to love, catching glimpses of what the world looks like through my daughter's eyes, cute furry animals, this list could go on and on .... I think the online community for crafty people is amazing, and I'm so glad to be a part of it. =)
