Veronica Guiry

Green Sunhat 6-12 Months

  • $80.00
This one-of-a-kind baby sunhat was hand knit by Veronoica from beautiful green organic cotton and fine wool yarn. A great gift for a baby shower or birthday! All her life Veronica has enjoyed creating things by hand. She learned the fundamentals of knitting from her maternal grandmother and mother. Her goal is to create functional knitted items from natural fibers. Some of her knitted hats, mittens, and bags are then felted (felting or more correctly, fulling, is the process of creating a fabric from a knitted piece). Knitting is a slow process from the first stitch cast on to the last one cast off. Veronica likes this gradualness of creating something as it balances the hurried pace of the environment that surrounds us. Product Details: -Fits babies 6-12 months. Circumference is approx 14". -Made from 20% cotton, 80% fine wool. -Hand wash in warm water. To dry, lay flat or block to correct measurements (drying over several loosely crumpled plastic shopping bags will give the crown a nice shape and allow you to smooth out the brim).
