Being cute in the cutest cloche hat pattern

Is this the Cutest Cloche Hat Pattern Ever?

Okay, how adorable does this hat look? I think Regina might be the cutest cloche hat pattern.

Being cute in the cutest cloche hat pattern Excuse the face I’m pulling – I just couldn’t get over how cute this hat is!

This is a cleverly designed little knit, which starts with a simple icord – no long cast on, and no worrying about stitches getting twisted! The brim is knit in one long strip, so it can be tried on as you go (much like my Baby Boom Beanies) And best of all, it’s a free pattern!

The most noticeable feature is the fan, which is sewn to the side of the hat after it’s knit.

Red and blue are probably my favourite colours, so that was what I looked out for in a yarn. All things being equal, why not wear your favourite colours all the time, if you can?

I knit it in a very squishy superwash merino wool I picked up in Bath. I just love souvenir yarn!

I wet-blocked my Regina… under the bed! This was a move to protect it against marauding cats. It’s a low bed, and while they could squeeze under it, I knew they wouldn’t bother going out of their way to sit on something underneath it, the way they delighted in sitting in things laid out on the couch, or on the carpet, for example.

I just love how this hat turned out. I honestly think Regina is the cutest cloche hat pattern out there. But I don’t love that it doesn’t “go” with my “big” Winter coat. The weather has definitely turned, and the days are short and foggy and cold. Regina looks amazing with my cape-style Autumn jacket (I feel extremely Miss Marple, in the best possible way), but I think the colours will clash with my teal Winter coat.

Oh well – I guess that means I’d better knit another hat!

Baby Aran Sweater

Baby Aran Sweater

When my niece was little (well, littler), my sister dressed her in a sweet baby Aran sweater. It was densely cabled and handknit by some “local knitting ladies” for the charity shop. At village fetes they had a stall, piled sky-high with sweaters and booties in pastel acrylic. “Those local knitting ladies are my rivals,” […]

But when is a beanie not a beanie? When it’s a turban, of course. This knitted turban pattern was originally published in the 1940s, and seriously, how […]
