Anyway. Back to the ridiculous hat...
It is WAY to big despite the fact that I ignored the pattern at several stages to make it smaller. I used this book and should have guessed they would make up big by the look of the child on the right hand side of the front cover who is almost drowning in her hat.
The hat has been through the washing machine on hot and through the tumble dryer in the vain hope it would felt (no was the answer).
Miss Eloise is thrilled with it despite it's hugeness. I'm sure she won't mind growing some Bob Marley Dreads to keep it on her head a little better. If she gets cold in winter she can always use it as a sleeping bag.
I had to resort to bribery for this particular fashion shoot!
