I could not resist the urge to embellish these; they were so plain. And so red.
Normally I like classic, clean lines in clothing. With this, I broke my unspoken bias against too many doodads on knitted garments. What can this possibly mean?
The "flowers" were made with a simple crochet chain (pretty much the limit of my abilities there), twenty stitches for each petal, using a 3.75mm hook. The buttons are gray metal LaMode buttons from Jo-Ann fabrics. I do like the capricious attitude it gives a seriously red hat!
