    If it was white it would look just like Audrey Hepburn’s hat in Sabrina. Great!

    Gorgeous! I’m such a big fan of hats, berets and all these things and I love vintage and retro style, so simply love it. Nice work with the presentation too and the black/white photos. As always. And thank you for the pattern! I think I’ll try it!

    thanks! actually the knit pattern is a 1940s pattern, listed on the Victoria and Albert Museum website for free (just added the link in the credits above).

    I think I know this knitting pattern (from a Patton Vintage knitting book edited in the 1980s?) Very stylish. Thanks for your compliments by the way. I hope to see the hoodie/coat you mentioned soon!
