Laces Out Cloche
This stylish cloche hat features a double moss stitch split brim, is knit in the round on circular needles and then laced up on the side like a corset with an additional piece of yarn, cord or ribbon. The hat is seamless and its eyelet design is worked into the body of the hat.
The hat can be made using any worsted weight yarn you wish. One skein of Dream in Color Classy in the colorway Lunar Zazzle was used to knit the hat in the photos. I just love how the blue stripes miraculously appeared as I was knitting it. :)
