I wanted to make Jacqueline Diamond, author of more than 95 novels, something special for the holidays. I especially love her Regency romances so thought I’d give a Hanukkah hat a special flair by adding Regency trimmings. Feathers were big in the early 1800s and the hats more understated than they were in the later Regency period. Considering how flamboyant they became, I could have gone even more glitzy. I did knit a sparkly medium blue band on the cap.

Hanukkah lands on Thanksgiving day this year. Maybe you know someone who’d love a hat. Or maybe they’d rather have a Regency romance, hmm?

Hi Cottongirl! Thank you. Nothing fancy--I loom knitted the hat on the 9.5 inch circular loom.

I'm glad you like the colors, Knittin'. Felt like Hanukkah colors to me.
