While experimenting with knitting warmer weather hats, Saugeen Summer Lace Cloche was designed on a canoe trip down the Saugeen river in Southern Ontario. Knit in a cotton linen blend, the fishtail lace motif offers ventilation while the double-thick sloped brim shades the eyes. Saugeen Summer Lace cloche is constructed in the round, top-down. The seed stitch band achieves definition by binding off and picking up around the circumference, seam outward, twice. There is no sewing required, so this hat will be ready to wear on any adventure in no time!
