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.

A Tutorial on PP2tog:

This pattern uses a gathering technique called PP2tog; Pickup and Purl 2 together. An example of how this is written in the pattern is as follows:

Row 28: P45{50,55}, PP2TOG 11{13,15}, 7 purl bumps below, P26{27,28} picking up wrapped stitches and purling them together with the stitches they were wrapped around

The 7 refers to how many bumps below the current bumps you are going to count and the 11{13,15} is how many stitches you are going to work. So if you look at the current stitch on the needle and see the purl around it as a necklace, that is your bump number one, directly below it is number two, count to seven and that is the first of 11{13,15} ( looking horizontally) bumps that will be worked. Lift that bump number 7 up onto the left needle and purl it together with the current stitch, then pick up the bump directly to the left of the last bump and purl it together with the next stitch. Work this for a total of 11{13,15} stitches across. Alternately if working with a DPN, start with the seventh bump, put it into a DPN, and then pick up the next 10{12,14} bumps directly to the left, and place them on a DPN, work the PP2tog, for 11{13,15} stitches.
