Pattern Description:

Knitted from the top of the crown down, Ginger is a 1920s-inspired cloche with an asymmetrical brim, knitted with worsted weight yarn at a tighter-than-recommended gauge for a firm fabric that will keep its shape without the extra step of felting. Choose a contrast brim color for an extra pop of color!

Choose a size that is as close to your actual head circumference as possible. Unlike many hats, Ginger works best with
a small amount of positive ease. Shown in Adult Large on a 22.5-inch head and Adult Small on a 21-inch head.
