Dreaming of Provence

It seems I can't stop making hats at the moment..

Here's my newest design - "Dreaming of Provence"

I lived in Provence for half a year in my youth. I've been back a couple of times, but it's a long time ago now. 25 years, to be exact, hard to believe, really, me being 29...

Petah is an Australian girl who fell in love with Provenc. She now organizes craft tours and other tours to Provence,  Provence Temptation. Tempting indeed, isn't it?

I would love to go back soon. Maybe next year. In the meantime, I knit and dream of Provence.


The hat is worked in Finullgarn. You only need appr. 8 g of each colour, so it's perfect for left overs. I think it would be lovely worked in hand painted sock yarn too. Are you interested? I could need a test knitter or two (repeating myself, aren't I?). At the moment I have written it in Norwegian, but I will translate it as soon as I can. 


The hat is inspired by the flowers of Provence, poppies, sun flowers, lavender.

Så herlig lue!! Fargerik og flotte motiver :-) Trenger du fremdeles noen til å strikke gjennom mønsteret ditt, så gjør jeg det veldig gjerne :-)
PS! Du må jo bare lage noen matchende votter til denne...

Lovely! I spent time in southern France when I was in college, and still miss it! No time to test knit, though, sorry!

What a gorgeous pattern! There must be something in the air - I'm dreaming of France too, although I've never been before.

Lovely! Nydelig! I'd be happy to TEST KNIT as I have many balls of Finnullgarn in various colors. Kan lese norsk, og! ~ Julie in Minneapolis; woolyjooly on Rav.
