This pattern provides an option for a slightly more fitted cloche style hat or slouchier beret style hat. You start with the band, join it then pickup around it and work both the crown and brim in the round.

There’s a range of potential bow embellishments included or you can simply embellish it with a vintage button or brooch.

A nice lofty wool is ideal to emphasise and make the pattern ‘pop’ and to give the hat structure.

This is a four page pattern, the first page is purely pictures, the second has all the technical information, materials and details on swatching. Page three has the hat pattern and page four the embellishment patterns.
Thanks to my friend Sara for modelling the hat for me.
