Dark Green Hat

The hat that I started the other day is now complete~! It was my project for WIP Wednesday, but it also became a FO on Wednesday.

It’s hard to show the fit and style of this hat from a flat picture of my completed project. It’s a cloche hat, from Boutique Knits. I bought that book a few years ago, but I still really like making the projects from it.
