Quest #1 is worked solely in stockinette stitch with a jaunty brim, while Quest #2 is worked in a honeycomb stitch to give it texture and depth. Quest looks great on lots of different heads! Have big hair (like me?) All you have to do is work a few more increases and your hair will fit!

Both versions of Quest are worked from the top down with worsted weight yarn worked at a tight gauge to help the cloche cling to your head.

Quest should fit snuggly, choose a size that is at least an 1.5 inches smaller than your actual head circumference.
17.519, 20.5 inches

The top of both versions lands at the back of your head, short rows are worked to help lengthen the front of the hat and create the cloche fit.
