Lace Hat

I enjoyed knitting up the lace hat from Sirdar #319. The pattern was very clear and my substituted yarn was in gauge perfectly. However, I'm wondering if the shape of this hat is for me? I'm worried it may look more 'peasant' than 'rock & roll', lol! Perhaps I just need to get used to it and I'm sure some makeup would help a lot. It still needs blocking to keep the hem from rolling, so it's going under a wet towel in a few minutes. Once again, the pic was taken with an arm outstretched and in the bathroom lighting, so it's not the best and the gray color is much prettier in person.

The lace design on the hat is very pretty! Hope the blocking works out the way you like. It's hard to wear winter hats.

It's so hot that I had a hard time keeping the hat on long enough to take a picture! I think I will be happy with it in the fall.
