How You Made It: Retro Cloche Stash Hat

Retro Cloche Stash Hat by Just call me Ruby, copyright knitonthenet

The Retro Cloche Stash Hat, from knitonthenet Issue 1 is a gorgeous close-fitting hat, of the style popular in the 1920s and early 1930s. Knitted in double knitting weight yarn it is constructed flat from the crown down. Designed by Just call me Ruby, her original hat is pictured above.

There have been some great interpretations of the hat such as the one below by LeAnn Rudge, a spinner and shepherdess from Central Oregon:
