A Very Red Wool Hat

 
I finished this wool hat a few days ago. 
 I bet it's been a year since I worked on it. 
I really have to be in the mood to make them now. 
 I tend to make them on a whim when I'm motivated by
 color or fabric or a request for one of my hats.
 
 
I was motivated by the wool background that I bought from the thrift store. 
A beautiful wool plaid that originally was a pillow cover.
The lining is a pink brushed flannel.

 
This hat is larger than what I usely make.
  The size is closer to that of a toboggan
 so that it fits low and loose on your head.

  11. I love how you used red on red for the applique and hat. I suspect the photographs probably don't do justice to the original, though. I try to imagine the texture from the applique and all the rubies and garnets in the flowers and leaves dancing around the hat. I love it when fabric sparks the inspiration!
