The Sprig Cloche is a face framing hat design with a sprig of foliage gracefully wrapping around the asymmetrical brim. The brim is first knit flat, then stitched together at the ends. Stitches are picked up along one side and knit up in the round to create the body of the hat.
This pattern is written for an intermediate knitter. Both charted and written pattern instructions are provided.
