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 Id 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 whod love a hat. Or maybe theyd rather have a Regency romance, hmm?

Love the hat. Very thoughtful gesture and I am sure she will like it.
Love the hat very much. Great idea for a special touch.
It doesn't take long either. Thank you for the kind comment.
Thank you. I hope she does!
I love you hat!!! What stitch did you use if I may ask? Lovely work and it seems like someone is going to have a very cozy warm hat
Love the colors. Love the embellishments. Love the hat! Lucky friend. I'm she will love it, too.
Hi Cottongirl! Thank you. Nothing fancy--I loom knitted the hat on the 9.5 inch circular loom.
