This listing is for the PDF knitting pattern of the Sandwitch Cloche, using Needle sizes US 10/6mm and US 15/10mm.
Yarn: about 4 ounce of Main Color (MC) and 1-2 oz of Contrast Color (CC)
It is a simple pattern that derives its shaping by changing needle sizes rather then increasing stitches. There is still a small amount of decrease shaping happening at the crown, but nothing a beginning novice couldn't master :)
This simple pattern is especially designed to showcase hand-spun yarn but can be knit up just as well using commercial yarn.
The hand-processed and hand-spun fibers I used in the sample listing include naturally creamy white Romney Lambswool from Sandy's Homestead Farm & beautifully soft Mohair from Namaste Farms that I spun into a lofty single and plied with a thin raw silk thread from my stash.
The yarns are knitted with bigger needles, so the body of the hat remains lightweight, weighing in at barely 2-3 ounces, and retains its slouchy shape.
Skills needed: cast on, knit, knitting in the round, ribbing, decreasing, sewing on button (optional)
Please convo me with any questions.
Happy Knitting :)

Each item has been crafted with a lot of love and handiwork in a smoke free environment, and is unique either in fiber, color or design or all of the above.
Most of my designs are truly one of a kind, because I use my own hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns. I also will occasionally use commercial yarns, but will not promote a particular brand. I mostly work with my own patterns. I also draw inspiration from printed patterns, but overall hardly work from a particular one pattern and oftentimes end up combining various elements from what catches my attention and inspiration.
I do want to state that I have 2 short-haired non-shedding dogs (Chocolate Lab & Weimeraner X), but they know to stay out of their mommy's fiber palace. Very rarely do I find a stray hair in any of my fiber projects.
I am happy to spin any of my spinning batts that I am offering here on the site for you. Just contact me :)
