Striped Tonya Hogan Hat

Another top-down pillbox experiment. Who is Tonya Hogan? Well, the idea to work the hat rise with purl sides out is from Cathy Carron’s Tonya pattern. The little brim is from her Hogan pattern. I added the stripes. Hence, this is the striped Tonya Hogan hat. It’s a little loose: I may try felting it down.
