Nola Petite is a miniaturized version of the Nola Cloche, sized to fit wee ones. Like its grown up sister, Nola Petite features a simple but striking twist formed with one cable row, a rolled brim that is easily adjusted to change the length of the hat, and a crown shaped with spiral decreases. This vintage-inspired mini-cloche can be worn with the twist to the side, or turned to the front for a faux-turban look.

A photo tutorial is included for an (optional) Provisional Cast On, as well as detailed instructions for grafting with Kitchener Stitch.

Specific yardage requirements are:
55 (70, 80, 90) yds/ 50 (65, 75, 80) m of DK-weight yarn

More notes on sizing:
Sizes correspond to ages Preemie (0-3 months, 3-9 months, 9 months – 2T) -- to be safe, measure the intended recipient’s head first or go up a size (they will always grow!).

The pale blue sample (in Debbie Bliss Rialto) is size 14.5”/ 37 cm and is modeled by Ruby, age 7 months. The pink (Cascade 220 Superwash) and purple (Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK) samples are size 16”/ 40.5 cm and are modeled by Piper, age 2 years.

The rolled brim is adjustable and the hat measures 3 (3.25, 3.75, 4)”/ 7.5 (8.5, 9.5, 10) cm from brim to top.
