Blue Homespun Rolled Brim Knit Hat with Flowers

Blue rolled brim knit hat with flowers Posted by Picasa
Now I am happy with this hat!

I used pink, orange, yellow and green yarn, and a large eyed plastic needle to embroider right over the knitted fabric of the hat. It wasn't as easy to do as I expected. There are holes in knitted work and that makes it difficult to knot the yarns when beginning or ending a new color. I also had to be careful not to make the flowers too tight or dense so that the knit wouldn't be distorted when I put the hat on my head. This hat now has charm! I am looking forward to some trips to Denver to visit family and have an excuse to wear this hat.
