Bollywood Makes: The Simran Hat

For a while now I have been toying with the idea of making some true blue desi inspired crochet projects. Since I am a big fan of Bollywood it was obvious what my first project should be: Simran from DDLJ. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge is one of my favorite films and I have seen it countless times and enjoyed it equally on every watch. The hat is from one of the iconic sequences of the film where SRK and Kajol are on their euro trip.
I have seen the hat and created a pattern based on what I see. I used a lovely sparkly yarn from James C Brett. It was perfect for this project. I crochet a little loose so people who crochet a little tight might need to add a few increasing rounds to the top of the hat.

If you are one of the few who have not seen this film yet, here is the hat I am talking about:

Here is another look at the hat that I made. I really love it. I made another one for a friend and she loved it to. So far all the DDLJ fans out there,I have put up the pattern here absolutely free. Do give it a go. I am new to pattern writing so there might be errors. Please let me know in the comments how it goes.
