Rowan Beach Cool - Molly

Rowan Beach Cool - Molly

I guess a girl named Molly could wear this, especially if Molly is a hollyhobby or if she's on the set of Little House on the Prarie, or maybe going through the trash behind your local 7-11.

Seriously, the Rowan book, "Beach Cool" is a great pattern book. I love the models and the pictures and the hats and sweaters in that book. Problem is, after ripping this out several times (I will admit to some serious errors on my part including not realizing that the US equivalent to double-crochet is SINGLE-crochet), this pattern is still off. The yarn is great fun, but it is too floppy to give you the type of brim you want on a hat like this. Plus, this hat--the one that I'm wearing here--is reinforced with ribbon and all sorts of nips and tucks and it is still a flop.
