The Day in the Park Cloche is knit bottom up from the brim to the crown in the round. You start with a lot of stitches to form the bell part of the cloche and then use a contrasting color to add a pop of color. You’ll knit the bow in your contrasting color back and forth before folding it into the bow shape and adding it to the hat. Sized to fit babies up to 18-months, this hat is a great knit for warmer weather and will be a super cute addition to any hat collection.
