The simplest of details makes all the difference here, with the widening brim creating a notched-neck effect at the same time as hinting at cloche styling. Worked in a variegated yarn, it’s quietly charming; in a solid or gradient, the architecture comes dramatically to the fore.

The pattern includes four sizes, plus tutorials for picking up stitches and working short rows.

Available either as a single pattern or as part of the Painted Woolly Toppers collection.
