Adult S/M (Adult L/XL) creates a 18.5 (20) in / 47 (73.5) cm cloche.
Pick the size closest to your head circumference minus 4 in / 10 cm.
2 skeins of Wildflower Yarn by Knit Collage in either Sage Green or Tart Orange, or 100 (120) yds / 91.5(110) m of super bulky ribbon cotton yarn. Please note that this hat uses more negative ease than normal to compensate for the lack of give in the cotton yarn and to give the sideways brim more structure.
US 10 / 6 mm needles or size needed to obtain gauge for working flat and small circumferences.
12 sts / 20 rows = a 4x4 in / 10x10 cm swatch in stockinette, knit flat, blocked.
Stitch holder or scrap yarn for holding stitches
8(10) stitch markers
Safety pins (at least 2)
This bottom up seamless cloche begins with knitting the sideways brim flat. The brim is then twisted twice before stitches are picked up along the brim edge. The hat is then continued in the round and is finished with spiral crown decreases.
