Hedy is a whimsical little hat with fun lace patterning details and textures created with increases and decreases. Inspired by the cloches of the 1920s and 1930s in French and American fashion, this close fitting hat has feminine details while maintaining its functionality and style. Customize your hat by knitting it longer for a slouchy style or keep it shorter for a more cloche-like hat.
This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice to advanced knitter and all those in-between.
