PatternCarillon Cloche

DesignerRachel Henry

Available:  $7 on Ravelry

Yarn: Hat: Schoppel-Wolle Leinen Los (2 balls); Bow: Schulana Kid-Seta (1 ball each of 4 colors)

Notions: JUL shawl pin or other embellishment

I really love this hat — hated to turn it in, actually. I have yarn set aside, so I’m thinking of hosting a nice casual KAL for Carillon.  If you’re interested, pop on over to the Remily Knits forum and comment in the Carillon thread.

The brim is worked sideways, on the bias, in half linen stitch.  The body of the hat is stockinette, picked up from the edge of the brim.  The Leinen Los is held doubled throughout.  The band and bow is Kid-Seta, also held doubled, also half linen stitch.  Colors are swapped out one strand at a time to create the slow glowing color change. So pretty!  Band and bow are sewn in place after the hat is wet blocked.

You can also wear it with the brim pinned up:
