Clarissa (Black/White Tweed)
This is an excellent and easy hat. It uses a light-weight Swiss Raffia braid. To insure the integrity of its structure over the years, I sewed tubing into its edges and loops. The brim is about 3.5 inches wide.
Inspired by literary chracter, Clarissa Dalloway, from the novel, Mrs. Dalloway, by VIrgina Wolf. She is the lovely heroine as she struggles with finding deeper meaning while she is very fashionable and going to parties, concerned for her appearance at the same time.
