Nola Petite is a miniaturized version of the Nola Cloche, sized to fit wee ones. Like its grown up sister, Nola Petite features a simple but striking twist formed with one cable row, a rolled brim that is easily adjusted to change the length of the hat, and a crown shaped with spiral decreases. This vintage-inspired mini-cloche can be worn with the twist to the side, or turned to the front for a faux-turban look. The pattern includes a photo tutorial for the optional Provisional Cast On as well as detailed instructions for Kitchener Stitch.
