Evangeline: first the pattern, now the kit!
Evangeline is a gorgeous hat pattern that was originally featured in Issue 10 of knitonthenet. Designed by Just call me Ruby this quick knit is inspired by 1920s and 30s cloche hats. As you may have seen, we have recently launched a series of knitting kits on the knitonthenet shop, and Evangeline is the latest.
The construction of Evangeline is updated from the interwar originals in that short rows and seamless shaping are used. The hat is also knitted in contrast to many original patterns which were crocheted. If you remember the wonderful BBC series, The House of Eliott you may have guessed that this pattern was named after Louise Lombard's character.
Although the picture above shows the contents of the kit to make a Greta turban, the Evangeline kit is presented in the same lovely red jute project bag, and includes the following.
In short, everything you'll need to make your own Evangeline. The kits are available in a range of four colourways: A - Rusty Cage, B -Purple Tempest, C- Grue and D - Caramel.
1 skein Babylonglegs SW Merino DK
3.25mm needles, 4mm circular needle, 4mm double pointed needles

Evangeline is the perfect hat on which to show off a lovely vintage button too, which is included in a colour and style to fit in with whichever colourway of yarn you have chosen for your Evangeline kit.
