Still Hat It Day 19

It's my 19th straight day of posting and surprising am still HAT IT.... And still not out yet of hats to share.

Today's hat is officially called the Vera Hat by Cathy Carron
and can be found in the book Hip Knit Hats.

But I just refer to it as the Chenille Hat...actually this is
probably the cheapest hat I've ever made, as the chenille yarn in
this hat was an acrylic purchased at Ocean State Job Lot,
and the pink isn't fun fur, but a similar readily available
lash type acrylic.
This isn't a recently knitted hat,
but one that has never been posted to either blog or Ravelry before.
I have made many hats from this book.
On Ravelry you can find some information on errata for this pattern, but
I either self-corrected as I went or never had a problem with pattern.
I remember it being a simple and rapid knit but that it came out a little
large for my small head...perhaps due to the stretchy nature of chenille.
Colors are certainly bold. The flower attached was one of my self
created gizmo's to add a little extra to hat.

From book description: A bit of a flirt, this eyelash-trimmed, flared-brimmed
hat goes easily from city to country and back again. Extra texture and color
nuance can be achieved by blending yarns from the same color family.

The following blog is today's peek and review, the wet felting is incredible!
Katie I am assuming it's her first name, is an amazing artist from the United
Kingdom who works in many mediums including batiks, but I am particularly
impressed with her highly creative sure and scroll down to bottom
of her blog and not miss these apples and other things she has made.

Her blog is called What Katie Did
