Fais Do-Do Hat by Cheryl Toy is inspired by the Cajun parties of the Deep South. Knit using Yashi, a soft a resilient fiber that is light and cool to wear. The wire brim can be sculpted just the way you like.  From a funky crumpled cowboy hat to a neat-as-a-pin wide brimmed straw to a demure garden chapeau, the Fais Do-Do is a real wardrobe staple that invites creative decor of all kinds. Try flowers, real or faux, shells, ribbons or jewels. It squishes flat for traveling too!

The Fais Do-Do is worked in the round from the top down beginning with a circular cast on. Spiral crown shaping makes for a pretty top. An eyelet round at the base of the crown allows for a braided cord to adjust the hat’s fit. A double knit tubular bind off creates a casing where thick soft floral wire is inserted and the Kitchener Stitch closes the edge.
