I was so pleased with the first hat that I made another one....
This time I wanted a braided cable around the band.
The cable is swatch 9 chart A right to the edge to make it wavy above the eyes.
For the danglers I made 4 I-cords finished with a crochet cup at the end, still thinking about pearls in the middle.
I left the crown plain on purpose to emphasize the band.
I am pleased with the result and started another one with a really wavy band this time...Stay posted.
