Chilli Red Hot!
Pattern | Cloche Divine by Meghan Jones
Yarn | Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in Amoroso
Needles | 5 mm circulars
After a few incidents of misplacing my beret or either spending quite some time searching for it, I decided to knit up another hat. I fell in love with the overall look of a cloche – don’t ask why – and decided that I’d brave the waters and try something different. Winter must have left an impact because I chose the brightest yarn I have in my stash – a nice chilli red – for this hat. At least it will add some colour to my wardrobe! Tehehehe.
I made the brim wider by about one to one and a half inches, and knitted the entire hat (after the brim) in the round. It is quite a fast knit; it took me about two to three days to finish the hat (I knit only when the kids nap or at night). While the overall result is fine and I do like how it looks, I think I need something sturdier with the same shape and a slightly wider brim. I reckon a plain stitched cloche that is felted would do just fine. It is just a matter of finding the right colour and yarn for it.
Guess it’s time to dig into my stash…or add to it! Kekekeke.
