Hermione Mother Hat

Alrighty then. Title really is clever I promise. So I made this hat for my mother. The hat pattern is found on Ravelry and is called the Hermione Hat. It is called this because Hermione wears the hat in one of the Harry Potter movies. (I have no idea which one, I haven't watched the movies recently, if you know, please comment.) J.K. Rowling gave Hermione that name because it is pronounced her*my*own*knee meaning that the character is hers. Since my mother is my own...(I share her with my sister, but that's not the point.) It's my Hermione Mother Hat. Or MAYBE its a HermyONLY Mother Hat. Ooooh I like that! Ill change the name I gave it on Ravelry, but if I change the name of the post the whole explanation gets well more muddy than it is.

Here is Val modeling the hat at our college group picnic. She couldn't model it at home because we were late. I didn't want to forget to take a picture in the daylight. I asked her to model it because her dark hair shows off the lace! Wooh! I only messed up in two places and not a soul can tell!

I really liked how the hat decreased. The flower star shape makes me pretty happy. If attempting this pattern definitely read tips on Ravelry. I did the add 12 stitches option because...well...we all have large heads.
New story connected with this hat:
I've discovered why people started wearing rings. They were knitting, and they lost their stitch marker, and they couldn't get up or they'd lose count or momentum. So they took off their ring and used it instead. Thanks Luke for this glorified stitch marker! ;)
Ps. I found the lost one when I got up to take a picture!
