Thunderstruck Cloche is a classic 1920's style hat that is made special with a few rows of simple and easy stranded color work on the brim.
The brim is knit flat and the main body of the hat it knit in the round, with a little short row shaping. This is a fun and fast knit, and is perfect for fall and winter. This pattern works best with heavy worsted or aran; it is designed to be a little stiff to keep its shape

My name is Taiga Hilliard and I am a yarn addict. I love designs that have a classic feel to them, but with a twist and am most happy when I get to work with cashmere, or other luxury yarns. When I do not have needles in my hands, I enjoy photography and reading.
I love top-down pieces, with very little finishing, and in the round patterns, which carries over into most of my designs.
