NUBBY BRIM CLOCHE
FO - Nubby Brim Hat3

History
We went to Centennial Park on a hot afternoon and DH kept on complaining about me not wearing a cap. I like baseball caps but somehow i couldn’t find a perfect baseball hat for my head. But Sydney’s summer (with a hole in the ozone directly above Aus) needs something more than a baseball hat, something that covers the ears and neck. After we are back at home in the evening, i went up and down Rav; choosed this pattern and completed it by next day morning.

Yarn: Bernat Satin Solid – 1 ball (100 gm) (I got this as a gift from Rima)
Hook: 6mm
Others: Scissors 🙂
Gauge: aaahhhh!!!!
Size: Its fits me perfectly
Pattern: “Nubby Brim Cloche” by Eileen Tepper (Its a free download on Rav)
Notes:
Its Acrylic yarn but it is unbelievably soft… its very soft and the color deep maroon is not so flashy for me to wear outside.The pattern is simple and at the end gives you a perfect cloche.
I changed a bit regarding the cord that runs around the hat. Instead of doing a long chain and all; i cut up 6 long peices of yarn and braided them with knots at either end.

If i make it again;
I don’t want to change anything probably use a different yarn but thats it.

Learnt:
Nothing much actually but i loved doing it.

Time:
This is the first project that i completed in a day…
