There are certain garments in existence that remind us, without skipping a beat, of eras past. The tye-dyed shirts (and everything else) of the 60’s, the neon of late 80’s and early 90’s, poodle skirts of the 50’s, and those charming hats from the 1920’s. Kynna (a girl who is often described as ‘retro’, ‘vintage’, or ‘a bit of a throw back’) knit up Regina and there is no mistaking that sense of style.
It all started with a new yarn in the shop, Berocco Flicker. It has just a hint of sparkle running through a super soft yarn. After scouring the pattern books, binders, and Ravelry, she decided on Regina for her 2 shades of grey. Her project is an aptly named Vancouver Grey Hat.
The Flicker offers a nice texture and a bit of interest with the shimmer, while managing not to steal the show from this cute design. The feather/fan looked completely crazy until blocked and sewed down by the way (I may not have mentioned that while it was in progress Kynna….). To knit up a Regina hat of your very own you will need 2 skeins of Flicker and the pattern (which you can get for free here)!
