Something for the weekend


The Spring 2015 Haute Couture collections happened in January, and I feel it would be remiss of me not to mention the hats at the Chanel show.

Not only are they hand-made creations, apparently knit from strips of tulle, many of them were wildly embellished with fabric flowers and pompoms and you really can’t go wrong with that.  chanel couture spring 15 hat

The image above was by far the most restrained of the hats, making good use of ‘variegated’ yarn instead of silk flowers.  A most basic hat pattern seems most appropriate for your own version of this look, with or without the embellishments.

Calzetta knit hat by Justyna Lorkowska

Calzetta by Justyna Lorkowska is a free pattern and really fits the bill–bulky, simple & slouchy.

Hannah knit hat by very shannon

Hannah is a lovely super-bulky hat by Very Shannon knit with a single skein of Malabrigo Rasta. I love the colour on both of these hats.

Happy knitting,
