A Cloche Encounter with Audrey

I'm not quite done with Mz. Kit Kat LeNoir's Cloche de Fleurs, but I finally gave it a proper name — Audrey. The cap is a tribute to timeless beauty, Audrey Hepburn. It's worked in Tunisian crochet and Half double crochet — looks like fine silk ribbon, no? I love the slight sheen this champagne colored microfiber.

The hardest part of making this hat is making a composition of anemones, for now they’re just tacked into place. This cloche has gone through quite a few changes so far — I changed the brim twice, I used fewer flowers. So what the hell do i do with a bag of pink flowers? Here’s a quick preview with the brim up and down.
