Gloria Tulip Hat available

The pattern for my Gloria Tulip Hat is now available.
It uses a Tulip Stitch lace pattern from the Creative Knitting stitch dictionary around the bottom, and the crown is in reverse stocking stitch.

I was very pleased to read that an Australian Aboriginal Artist, Gloria Petyarre, has had a scarf design selected and used by the acclaimed French company, Hermes.
Well done Gloria. I thought I’d name my hat pattern in her honour.
