It is a really Big Hat

It was really cold over here this week, so cold in fact that none of my hats could protect me. This was a call for some wardrobe update. Last Autumn I fell in love with the Marc Jacobs Mushroom hat and was on the quest of replicating it: I bought the yarn, the needles….. But then the inspiration had left me.

So, this week, all I had to do was to knit it, which I did.
I firstly opted for the original look and got it by making a shorter double hat but I looked absolutely awful in it, so ugly in fact, I made no pictures and quickly ripped it before anyone could see me.
With the second attempt I took my time: I knew what look I wanted to achieve, it was just the matter of actually doing it. Here it is: my own Mushroom hat.

Model: my own adaptation of Marc Jacobs’ Mushroom Hat
Yarn: 3 skew of Blue Sky Alpacas
Needles: Addi circulars 15mm and 20mm

As a matter of fact i wore mine yesterday, yours looks so much softer and something between the slouchy beret and a hat! Great job on it Anastasia!
