chop suey

Another finished object, another hat. This is the Sideways Grande Cloche by Laura Irwin, which has been on my to-knit list for too long.
I love how it's constructed and it fits really well, too. (At the suggestion of several people who have made this hat, I cast on only 36 stitches. That was a smart move.)
I used one skein (plus a quarter of a second skein) of Araucania Nature Wool Chunky in this cool kettle-dyed stormy dark blue/green color.
The shape of this hat reminds me of Edward Hopper's painting Chop Suey. I'm going to have to pretend I'm that girl in the blue hat with her back turned. (Lovely!)
