I finished Ella

A few posts ago, I showed you all a picture of a hat called Ella from the book Hip Knit Hats. Well guess what I did this weekend. (actually Sunday). I made it. I used Moda Dea's Cashe'. It's a thick and thin bulky yarn. It worked up pretty well. It's 75% wool, 22% Acrylic, 3% Polyester. The only thing I did do differently is, I added a small bow to the back. I have several berets, traditional Scottish berets that have this little added touch, so I added one too.
