One of the most beautiful and extraordinary wildflowers is the daffodil. Across different cultures it represents many things. The Romans thought the sap of the daffodil had healing properties. In Wales and China, it is believed to bring good luck. In the Victorian age, a daffodil meant chivalry, and today we like to think that they represent hope. What better flower can you use to decorate your hat! This pattern above will help you make one yourself.
