CRAFT: Cozy Up to Yarn
Lion Brand Yarn

Andrea Coquettehat
One of my longtime blog friends, Andrea Tung of Making Things created this adorable knitting pattern to make this Coquette Cocktail Hat. A name I like! You can pick up the pattern at Ravlery for £2.00 (or around $4).
Andrea writes:

How to be unforgettable; wear a beautiful hat! There is no other fashion accessory that can achieve what a hat can do. This miniature beret style cocktail hat was inspirited by the likes of old Hollywood film beauties, like Audrey Hepburn- graceful, sophisticated and full of personality. This is a speedy knitting project, so you can knit one up in time for a party of night out (possibly make one for all the girls for a hen night)! Or be bold! Wear it nonchalantly on the street and receive lots of smiles and attention from passing strangers! It is called “Coquette” after all; it’s French for “flirt”.

You can read my interview with Andrea back in 2006 on Make:Online (before we had Craftzine.com). Andrea is also the proprietor of Fable Handknit, an online shop she created that sells her luxurious baby alpaca yarn.
