Gillian is a 1920s-inspired hat that features a picot-edge brim and an oversized bow. It is finished off with a sparkling pin or button. As fun as Gillian is to wear, she is even more fun to make as you get to explore a special double knitting technique for the bow. The pattern is packed full of tutorial photos to assist you in making the bow and folding it. With the tutorial, it is a snap to make! This is a listing for the knitting pattern named Gillian.
