“Sunshine & Posies” for Patience

Patience is all about summer sunshine and flowers, flowers everywhere.  Doesn’t she look all bright and happy and ready to make you smile?

I love Patience in hats.  This one is crocheted with three strands of cotton in two different weights of thread.  The brim can be turned up, down, or a bit of both.  The band matches the dress.  I “free hand” crocheted (no pattern) the flower to coordinate with the shapes on the dress.  It is a cup shape and filled with yellow beads for the stamens and has a curly apple green stem.
