Laces Out Corset Cloche Hat Knitting Pattern
Level= Advanced Beginner to Intermediate
This hat is knit flat, partially sewn up at the crown and then laced up on the side like a corset. This fun yet classy hat is soon to become your favorite! Incidentally, the name “Laces Out” is a reference to the hilarious movie Ace Ventura Pet Detective.
To make this hat you will need about 175 to 200 yards of Worsted weight yarn. I cannot stress enough how important it is to use a yarn that is on the thicker side since it will add more structure to the hat. This is one pattern where yarn thickness does matter. Also, make sure you pay attention to your gauge.
You will also need a tapestry needle to sew the top part of the hat with and some yarn, cord or ribbon to lace the hat up with in the final step.
Hat fits most Adult head sizes from 20" to 23" and you can lace the hat up as tight or as loose as you'd like.
Yarn used= Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the color Sauterne
