A stylish head topper for winter, Cloche Divine harkens back to a time when hats were not only high fashion but absolutely fabulous to wear as well. Worked in a fantastic green superwash worsted merino wool, this cloche features a wide border of seed stitch for the brim. The stunning bow is created by making short rows and then gathering them together by purling together two rows at once. A small seed stitch tab is picked up and knit from the stitches on the hat before the gathers and then worked into the stitches after the gathers to create a bow-like look. Inspired by classic designs from the 20’s and 30’s, this cloche has three sizes to perfectly accommodate any adult head size.
