Ghawazee Knitting

So, I saw this very excellent painting of egyptian Ghawazee dancers, and now of course I want to make their outfits for RenFest next year. What's really interesting is how much of this might actually be knittable! In particular, the woman's hat on the right:

I'm thinking I'll use my Baby Silk, in Oxblood and Mocha, to make this hat. If I doubleknit it, not only will it be reversible, I won't have to worry about all sorts of strands hanging around all everywhere. Yay, I get to learn a new technique!
