MORE FAUX ISLE AND CURLICUES
Even if they don’t work as glasses cases, it is a very worthwhile experiment in putting colors together. Colors I would never have thought to put beside one another look wonderful to me!

Knitting Over The Edge has cabbage roses on the cover which gave me the idea to make some and just attach one end to the top of the hat. I did use one of those on this hat, but Pam (MN) from Knitlist had a better idea: to cast on a whole bunch of stitches on a long needle….
