April Knit Lab III: fine knit Cloche

I’ve had this beautiful fine baby alpaca yarn in my stash for a while (thank you Emily!) and I’ve been waiting for an idea to come along that is worthy of this yarn. I finally decided on a cloche type hat and above is my first attempt. I am quite happy with this one – both proportionally¬† and the use of the subtle texture pattern. I’m working on a second version that may eventually become a pattern offering.
