The beautiful, vintage, etsy buttons found a new home on my old black coat, in stead of boring black plastic mittens.
Well, actually I was going to make a small cowl, working in the round. But as I was trying it on, I saw it wanted to be a hat in stead. The pattern was gifted to me through Ravelry from a blog friend, Josefina Knits from Chile. She makes pretty cabled cowls and other accessories - and is looking forward to autumn..
The pompom was quickly made with a little bit of yarn, fork and scissors, learned from EskimimiKnits.
Edited to add information about the cowl/hat pattern: It's Flowers and leaves cowl, by Gabriela Ordenes. She also has an Etsy shop.
