Worked from the bottom up in a simple romantic, lace pattern, Florian is reminiscent of a hat that Shakespeare's Juliet would wear as she walked the roads of Verona. Just as her ardent love adorns her very being, Florian is accented by a red, knitted flower which is hand-sewn on the hat. You can also wear the hat plainly, if so desired. Florian is well suited for the enchanting, chilly spring nights when you step out to meet up with your very own "Romeo."
