I didn’t know if I was going to add the flower yet when I took these photos.
Well I did decide to add a flower. Flowers patterns are hard for me to figure out by just reading. Maria’s flower pattern for the hat, on her site with a picture tutorial was not enough help to me. So I took to YouTube to find a video for a big layered flower. I found one that I kinda understood.
Well when it came down to it I just kinda winged my own flower. I started a granny square for the center in Hyacinth. Then I double crocheted 3 times in the spaces, next I think I single crocheted the tops of those double crochet then double crocheted down to the granny square center. Then I double crochet in the front loop only 3 times slip stitched in the same then slip stitched the next stitch, slip stitch then chain 3 , then dc in next 3 front loops in Mulberry Mix I repeated that around. Then I changed to Bright Orchid and did the same in the back loops of the previous round. Then I finished by slip stitching around that in Amethyst.
Well, any way I think that is what I did. 😀
I sewed the flower on the hat with a bright pink button at the center.
I also sewed the points of each of the outer petals to the hat
other wise they curled up and I thought this would keep it more secure to the hat.
Oh, by the way how do you like my new model? Kay gave her to me. She is a little dinged up, but she really knows how to work a hat!
