Gillian is a 1920s-inspired hat that features a picot-edge brim and an oversized knit bow. It is finished off with a sparkling pin or button. As fun as Gillian is to wear, she is even more fun to make as you get to explore a special double knitting technique for the bow. The entire bow process is documented step-by-step with instructions and picture tutorials, so it is a snap to make and fold into shape.
