Jean's Irish Hat

This is my take on a hat that my infamous mother-in-law, Jean, bought in Ireland over 20 years ago. She handed me the hat and asked if I could make it for her and, of course, she wanted a few changes. I liked the hat and thought it would be a fun project to take it apart and figure out a pattern. I've updated it and made it with two different versions for the brim. The skinny brim version is so current while the wider brim takes on a Downton Abbey feel. I'm amazed that adding an inch to the brim could change the style of the hat so much!

Jean has matching mitts.
