I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!
My design style reads romantic and at times vintage and whimsical. I am getting to do what I love every single day and hope that knitting and crochet never ever goes away!
Imagine yourself as Daisy Buchanan, all dolled up and ready to dance the Charleston with your fella.
The Gatsby's Girl cloche is vintage inspired and features fun, unique construction.
Features a special lesser known 3 stitch cable technique. For a video tutorial of this unique stitch, visit:
Cloche is worked in Fingering weight yarn held double. I-Cord is made single stranded.
Hat pictured is made using only 2 skeins of Knit Pick's Stroll Glimmer in "Kestrel", a gorgeous deep toned charcoal with what looks like shimmery specks of diamond dust.
Hat is one size fits most. It stretches to fit an adult sized head but also fits a young lady's head quite well.
With Fingering weight held doubled
20 st & 23 rows = 4X4" in Stockinette stitch
310 yards of Fingering weight
