This cloche is worked from the top down and in-the-round. Instructions are included to work it up in a single color or with a contrasting color to mimic a woven ribbon. The bow is optional and is worked separately then sewn onto the hat.

If working in two colors, the color shift begins on round 18. Detailed instructions for working with two colors are found on page 4 of the file.

Two hook sizes are listed; however, the larger hook is used for the final round only. You may choose to work that round loosely with your smaller hook rather than changing hooks.

U.S. terminology throughout.
