Northern Belle Cloche
This cute and classy cloche features a split seed stitch brim and a panel of eyelets. It is knit in the round on circular knitting needles to eliminate seaming in the final step.
This hat has loads of styling options: the brim can be worn folded up or down, the eyelet panel can be worn to the side or back of the head, and the eyelets can be even be laced up for an entirely different look.
The hat can be made with about 175 to 200 yards of any worsted weight yarn you wish. One skein of Berroco Vintage in the color Gingham was used to make the hat in the photos.
