Sadie is a felted cloche, knit in the round. Designed in honor of my great-grandmother who lived through the US’ Great Depression, Sadie’s subtle Art-Deco lace details are meant to be quietly stylish and infinitely wearable. Her soft color and understated beauty will carry you through the day with a bit of graceful panache! Photo-tutorial instructions are given in the pattern for felting a test swatch and adjusting the hat length in two places to be sure your felted hat comes out perfectly every time. Sadie is a great first lace or first felting project. A simple knit that comes together quickly, it’s as effortless to knit as it is to wear! SIZING: Small: 21” circ Med: 23.5” circ Large: 26” circ Sadie calls for 250-335 yards of sport weight 100% animal fiber yarn. Synthetic fibers and washable/superwash yarns will not felt. All other animal fiber blends should work, with the exception of silk. Size 7 US needles (circular or DPN) or correct size to achieve gauge are also required. You will likely also want stitch markers. Note that gauge is measured by your test swatch, which is knit flat.
