Eliza Hat was featured in Jane Austen Knits magazine 2014 and is now available as a pdf download on this page.

Regency bonnets reflect the drama of the period, and this darling hat is no exception. Its asymmetrical brim reflects a mood from coy to provocative and even pragmatic as winter storms threaten. Embellishment ranging from a brooch or faux flower to more elaborate decorations such as needle felting make the hat as changeable as the moods of Austen’s heroines and every bit as charming and lively.
