Happy Holidays, hope they are DIVINE

In the spirit of the holidays I am offering my new pattern; Cloche Divine as a free download. Hopefully you have someone on your list who would love to receive this hat as a gift for the Holidays this year!

A stylish head topper for winter, Cloche Divine harkens back to a time when hats were not only high fashion but absolutely fabulous to wear as well. Worked in a fantastic green superwash worsted merino wool, this cloche features a wide border of seed stitch for the brim. The stunning bow is created by making short rows and then gathering them together by purling together two rows at once. A small seed stitch tab is picked up and knit from the stitches on the hat before the gathers and then worked into the stitches after the gathers to create a bow-like look. Inspired by classic designs from the 20’s and 30’s, this cloche has three sizes to perfectly accommodate any adult head size.


Thanks to Sarah Magney, a great friend and model for such lovely pictures

  4. Unable to find a reference to gauge. Is there errata for this pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  5. The Gauge is 18sts and 24 rows, it does not say that in this post and I will update it, it does state the gauge in the pattern on the right hand column of the 2nd page underneath the picture.

  12. Hi.
    Just in need of clarification: When the instructions read K1,(k1, p1) x49[53,57], k1 I am assuming that it is meaning to continue in knit to the end of the row?
    The PP2tog tecnique is a bit difficult to figure out at first as well.
    Thanks;
    Myra
