The cross (make 2)
Cast on 3sts in grey and garter stitch until long enough to go over the top of the hat and cast off.
Sew the 2 grey strips in a cross pattern over the purple of the main hat and then decorate with jewels. I have used a string of beads but you could also use stick on jewels or maybe even tie French knots in bright coloured wool as 'jewels'
