If Lynda is the Empress of Hats, Marlaine is surely the Princess Royal. Here is a hat she knit with Malabrigo worsted weight, modeled by this young woman whose name Roisin isn’t sure how to spell but thinks it is Carly (we’ll update this post when we find out). Carly is Gina’s daughter whose work, complete with Frankie the dog, has been featured here before.

Apparently, the prettiest part of the hat is the crown–which we can’t see in the photos. But the terrific smile makes up for that!
