Cutest Hat... EVER! Bow Tie Cloche/Chemo Cap

Tah-Dah!


Design:  Bow Tie Cloche/Chemo Cap by "The Bell Sisters (Ding and Dong)"

Pattern link can be found HERE. (When I posted about this hat initially, the pattern was FREE.  Now the pattern is offered for sale and you can find it here):

Yarns used: Cascade Fixation in Hot Pink & Plymouth Yarn Jeannee DK in White.

Hat is bigger than I hoped but I'll be making this pattern again. Just need to tweak my knitting a bit.  Used size 2 and 3 circular needles.  Need to invest in a size 1 needle. Cascade Fixation yarn contains elastic and I struggled figuring out how loosely/how tightly to knit with it. I knit too loosely and used size 2 needles (when the pattern called for size 1).  This hat is a lot of knitting but so worth it. I can see me adding bows to other plainer hats in the future.

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

When I first posted about this hat, the pattern was offered by the designer free of charge. The pattern is no longer FREE. I corrected the link above so one can purchase the pattern if interested.
