FO: Dowager Escargot

Me: I do enjoy the look of a good hat — just not on my head.

The Other Violet: Don't be defeatist, dear. It's terribly middle class.

Me: Well, it is knit... What's the harm in trying it on?

The Other Violet: Oh, my dear, in my time I wore the crinoline, the bustle, and the leg-of-mutton sleeve. I'm not in a strong position to criticize.

Me: Um, yeah. Next time I'll skip the ill-conceived mods.


Pattern: Escargot by Veronica Parsons
Yarn: Knit Picks Chroma Worsted (Bittersweet Heather) and
TFA Green Label (Turquoise Water)


  1. Great post!! Love the color combo, too.

  2. Been there done that but I actually like your hat.

    1. Thanks, Tanya! Izzy is now enjoying the hat, since I have no need for a yamaka! ;-)
