"Bold Contrast Square Hat" by Kalpna Kapoor
On Saturday, my yarny friend, Leo gifted me with a belated b-day gift. I'd seen this hat on Leo at an El Segundo Knitters Guild meeting awhile back and admired it. So, Leo crocheted one for me. I do like that this hat looks like a fez, reminiscent of exotic, mysterious men of the east or Shriners! In fact, I've even crocheted a baby fez myself!

Leo asked for my head measurements. I gave them to him. For some reason, his gauge must have been off a bit. My fez turned out kinda' small, more like a fascinator than a traditional hat! A fascinator is a tiny hat that perches on the edge of your head, with a jaunty slant. I do like my jaunty fez...I think it's cute.....and rather fascinating!
