this pattern. It is an interesting pattern, because once you get the pattern established, you turn your work after each row, which I have not done before when working in the round. I also like it because the cloche is very form-fitting to the head.
The yarn I used for this project is Michael's Loops & Threads Charisma (color is Lakeside). It is 100% acrylic yarn and I absolutely loved working with it. It is so nice and soft, and is going to make this a nice, warm hat for Jennifer to wear in jolly old, cold England!
I plan on making her several more hats and/or cloches in different colors, so hopefully she will have a hat to match most of her wardrobe. I'm thinking I will make some scarves to match some of them too, if I have enough yarn left over.
If you haven't given this yarn a try yet, I highly recommend it.
