Pattern Description from “The Erte cloche is inspired by the beautiful hats of the 1920s. This one can be worked with a contrasting brim facing which, if done carefully, creates a reversible hat. Knit up the flowers or wear unadorned, either way, the look is feminine and classic without being dated.”
