This simple design can easily be completed in an afternoon of knitting. Perfect for last minute gift giving!

The Ida cloche is worked from the bottom edge up to the crown decreases. Simple yarn overs form eyelet loops through which an i-cord is laced.

Make the hat more or less slouchy by adjusting the length before the crown decreases. Add rounds will result in a slouchier version while subtracting rounds will create a more fitted look.

• Design is rated Easy for basic stitches and working in the round.
