Short Description: Montgolfier Hat by Irina Anikeeva. The Montgolfier Hat was inspired by Montgolfier hot-air balloons; the charted cables mimic the colorful designs of the traditional hot-air balloons. Worked from the bottom up in the round with a tonal hand-dyed yarn, this adventurous hat makes a colorful statement.
