Inspired by Kelims and old woven textiles. Using geometric designs and rich sources of colour and pattern. Kelim designs are quite large and lend themselves to intarsia, but, I wanted to try and translate the designs into a simplified fair isle, stranded design. This cloche hat is the first of a new collection of Kelim inspired designs for Autumn Winter. 2013 The pattern takes a very small quantity of D.K. yarn, making it a perfect stash busting project. You will need approx 100grams of main yarn Black and a very small quantity of Blue, Light Brown, Silver Grey and Peach for the fair isle design. Very quick to knit on 4mm (UK8-US6) Knitting Needles. The pattern is written and charted. One size to fit an average adult head. Width around crown 56cm. (22inches). GAUGE 22 stitches and 30 rows to 10cm (4in) over stocking stitch using 4mm (UK8-US6) Knitting Needles SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size to fit an average adult head. 56cm (22inches) COLORWAY Yarn A:Black.
