Can I have a Bow?


I was inspired by Nancy Ajam’s ( in case you don’t know her she is a beautiful famous Arabic singer or is it Lebanese?)receptions dress she wore to her wedding. I had to close my mouth before I wet my key bored! Hehe the dress was beautiful. Designed by Channel, it was long, strapless and had a big bold black bow in the bodice. I was inspired to make a hat from this dress. This hat is crochet and simple and quick to make. I made this hat in one day.Now this size I give is to fit size 22 1/2- to 23" inch head so if your head is smaller then do less increases. Like most of my patterns. I try to make simple but chic, or simple and cute ^_^ You can easily make this hat in a simple knit and knit bow. Getting the same look. Feel free to make the hat in different color combos. Examples: Pink hat white bow. Red and white bow, black and white bow blue and white bow. The possibilities are endless! The base of the hat is simple on its own and I like the base alone as well. I hope you ladies and gents like the patterns. I would love feed back. Feel free to drop me a note or comment :D

  3. There is a mistake in Row 5. Instead of "R5: Ch 2, 4 dc in the next st, *5 dc, 2 dc in the next st, rep from * around (42 sts) Sl st." It should be "R5: Ch 2, 4 dc, 2 dc in the next st, *5 dc, 2 dc in the next st, rep from * around (42 sts) Sl st."
