Tuppence's Aran Cloche

"This hat is named after Agatha Christie's fictional character Tuppence Bersford," says Ouellette. "In her stories, Tuppence always had a hat to match the mood and circumstances of the mysteries she and her husband Tommy were solving. She was also quite the knitter in her mid to later years! I feel sure she would have liked this cloche. It is simple and elegant on the surface, but with many interesting details underneath to create that illusion. Very much like Tuppence herself." All cables are charted as well as written out; and sizing is accomplished through the sensible use of different yarn weights (so as not to tamper with the purity of his immaculate design). This is a great pattern by a superb knitting coach.
