(6) Name: 'Knitting : Nouvelle

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, Purl, increasing, decreasing, kitchener stitch

Pattern Description:

This hat is a hybrid of two vintage styles: the cloche and the turban. Inspired by the 1920s, it has an old style feel but is not too out of place in our postmodern world. When worn with the gathering on the sides, it looks like a cloche, with a close fitting bell shape. When turned 90 degrees so the gathering is in the front, it looks more like a turban.

The pattern covers heads from 14" - 22" in diameter and instructions for a two tone colorblocked version.

Any worsted weight yarn works well with this pattern on size 8 needles. The berrocco flicker knits up tighter than other yarns because of its elasticity.
