Flapper hat

No - not flap hat - flapper - think 1920's. I designed this for my wife but she hasn't been around when I had the camera out so my dog (Maggie) modeled it. It looks MUCH better on my wife!

Actually it's the Wisps of Smoke Ring. I made it as a cowl for my daughter but had nothing here to pose it on.

My mother lives in south TX and really can't wear anything I can knit so she asked me to knit a tablecloth for her.

Thanks to whomever it was on this group that asked the question about a "basket" stitch and also to whomever posted the pattern.
