Because everyone needs a handmade aviator’s hat. This is knit in Knit Picks Swish dk and Biggo that I won in a Holla Knits giveaway. You can see the earflaps and beginning of the brim, below.
This hat’s construction is really interesting. I love making something unlike anything I’ve knit before. It keeps me interested and I’m not quite sure how it will turn out until it is finished. I’m thinking an Amelia Earhart, Karen Blixen, Margaret Bourke-White kind of vibe.
