Blue Feathered Cloche

I just finished  crocheting a hat made with my handspun wool yarn.  One ply of the yarn was a smooth blue yarn and one ply was a lumpier curly kid mohair.  One side of the hat is adorned with a peacock feather, royal blue feathers, a bird nest veil fabric, and buttons. (vintage and new)  The brim of the hat can flip up or down, depending on which look you are going for.  It is a bright happy hat that you can't feel unhappy wearing.  It looks like It is a thick yarn and large stitches were taken to make the hat.  It took a little more work than it appears since the ridges on the brim were made by crocheting 3 stitches  around the post of a stitch.  What projects are you working on?  Thank you for viewing!  Blessings to you and yours!  Dawn
