This easy pattern (especially for first-time top-down hat knitters) embraces the intensely rich palette of Malabrigo’s Chunky merino yarn and knits up like a breeze. To emphasize its bell-shaped cloche feeling and to play with color, one can easily attach a buckle and add a piece of favorite ribbon to the base of the hat, as I’ve shown in one of the images here.

** Please note: The brim of this hat is crocheted and making the hat requires knowing how to work single crochet.
