Talmadge is an elegant cloche to see you through a rainy British summer. It features a beautiful lace pattern, started in the centre of the crown with a pinhole cast on, followed by a moss stitch knitted-on edging. The pattern includes a photo tutorial on how to knit on an edging, as well as stepwise instructions for both a cable and knitted cast on. The pinhole cast on was covered in May’s pattern, Alex the Mouse.

The Talmadge cloche is not available as a single pattern.
