paddington: a hat for mrs brown

a hat for mrs brown is complete!

and the weather to match seems to have arrived at the same time.

at first i wasn't sure what to do once i'd gathered it in at the top. i needed a little button - preferably to match?

then i had an idea for something just the right size.

a few stitches to hold it in place...

and voila! yarn covered "button" i didn't need to leave the house to find.

tadah! (remember, i'm a knitter, not a photographer.)

here is the pdf of the pattern. enjoy!
