Shepherdess Cloche

My “Shepherdess Cloche” hat design, sized for adult females, knit in Dale Garn Monjita, Hegre and Heilo or Falk, now available as a knitting pattern, PDF or kit:

 

Knitting pattern for ladies' hat with Fair Isle detail.

Shepherdess Cloche, a knitting design for a ladies’ hat.

Dale Garn’s new, wonderfully soft, Persian-lamb-lookalike, Monjita, is held together with a strand of Heilo (or Falk, if you prefer) through the main portions of the hat,  so you end up with one very warm, very speedy project – perfect for your holiday list, no?!  I used four colors of Hegre for the Fair Isle band.  Of course, if you’re not quite ready for Fair Isle -style knitting, you could simply knit stripes for the colors in the band. But, the longest float on the Fair Isle band is only 3 stitches long, so this just might be the very “first Fair Isle” project that some of you have been asking for.  Hope so!  The pattern includes colorway suggestions for brown, camel and off-white hats, in addition to the black version, shown.  Check out the color cards, below – I can’t wait to see your version!
