I'm not always keen on bobbles, but there's something about a bobble hat that does me in every time. I've been wanting a lace diamond and bobble hat for ages now, and Clara is the end product of a great deal of experimentation to get just the right result. From the twisted stitch brim to the star on the crown, Clara is simple yet fun to knit and fun to wear. Named for It Girl Ms. Bow, the hat has a little of the old and a little of the new. Add a ribbon bow for a little something extra or leave it plain for a winter hat with a lot of style.
