Autumn harvest hat with petals and palm tree button

Re-energization can come from the oddest of places. I hadn't crocheted in almost a year, and had started to destash most of my yarn to family and friends. I felt that fabric was now my love for life. I should have known better, lol. Crafting is a revolving wheel, it takes you to new, and also old places.

 

But ever since featuring my designs in a museum gift shop, I've been inspired to do hats, apparently the most popular items. I've started drawing and sketching again, and have fallen in love with embellishing crochet again.

 

This hat has huge flower petals with a button center. The petals are felted wool fabric, the button has an embroidered palm tree detail (my shout-out to sun during the snow storms)

 

I love the colors, very autumnal and fall like, my favorite colors.
