Danish Summer Cruise Day 2

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik of Denmark continued the first leg of their annual summer cruise with a visit to Odense last Thursday. She repeated her textured red straw hat with slim bow at the crown.

This closeup photo gives us a better view of this hat than we have seen before. Originally, I thought the hat was made of two different straw textures. This view shows this is a simple straw hat simply covered, in part, with an open-weave fabric (similar to a knit or crochet blanket). This textured fabric also was used on the edging around the brim. It creates marvelous texture on this hat that, at a distance, looks like a roughly woven straw. I am less partial to the closeup view of this hat but continue to like it from more of a distance where the texture looks less homespun. What do you think?
