Day In the Park Cloche
Construction Notes: This cute cloche is a perfect little baby gift that knits up quickly. You can knit two different sizes or two contrasting cloches by alternating your two skeins of Jojoland Tonic Yarn. The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up with a brim that has twice the number of stitches as the cap of the hat. Double pointed needles are recommended for the hat and bow, with the bow worked back on forth on the double-pointed needles.
