...Erin's Hat...

I've been working on this project for some time now and here it finally is!  Introducing Erin's Hat!


I designed this hat for my wonderful daughter, Erin.  It's the perfect accessory for the crisp autumn days, football games and tailgating;  these are a few of  Erin’s favorite things. Her hat is perfect whether you’re cheering on your favorite college team or just taking a walk on a brisk fall day.  A beautiful band of cables travels around the brim ending with a smart decreased, cabled buttonhole section.  The stockinette section and uniform decreases on the crown finish off this simple but classic hat.   Add a special button and you’re set for cooler weather and the crunch of leaves under foot!
