Delicate circular cables decorate this Cloche style Hat. The Brim is knitted sideways and the stitches for the Body are picked up in a clever way to ensure neatness and continuity. The Crown is finished with a delicate gather, defining the overall shape.

This Hat is easily adjusted for more or less slouch, and for different weight yarns.

Diese bezaubernde Mütze ist mit einem Zopfmuster aus Kreismotiven dekoriert, reich strukturiert und gleichzeitig elegant. Der seitwärts gestrickte Rand wird nach einer cleveren Methode gearbeitet, die für einen sauberen und professionell wirkenden Abschluss sorgt. Am Oberkopf leicht eingereiht, ist diese Mütze sehr tragbar.

Die Anleitung enthält sowohl eine Strickschrift als auch reihenweise ausgeschriebene Anweisungen und beinhaltet 5 Größen.
