Vintage Permelia Fanchon Hat
Popular in the 1860’s, the Fanchon Bonnet provided a lady with an opportunity to adorn this small hat with flowers and ribbons. The Permelia Bonnet is my knitted interpretation of the Fanchon. This small hat is perfect for windy weather or when you just want a touch of warmth and style.
The two patterns included with this purchase are the Cable Plait Fanchon and the Garter Fanchon. Both are knit with worsted weight and in one piece from tip to tip. A very quick knit.
