Mary Walker crocheted this Ra-Ra Raffia Fedora using the Cowboy Hat Fedora Secret pattern by Natalia Maksiuta. Natalia creates some of the best patterns for raffia from her home in Ukraine. When Mary became interested in raffia, Natalia’s patterns and their accompanying video tutorials became her go-to sources for working with this new-to-her material.
We are using these hats for shop models. People started asking how much we’d sell them for, leading us to look at that question seriously!
