Named for a pioneering (and stylish) aviatrix, Dutrieu’s bold lines make the most of hand-painted sock yarn. While the sideways garter-stitch construction is easy and fun to work, short rows plus a widening brim result in unpredictable colour changes that add a note of adventure to this simple cloche.
The pattern is written for two sizes and includes tutorials for the provisional cast-on and garter stitch grafting.
To fit sizes: 20  in/50.75  cm ; finished size: 16.5 [18.5] in/42.25  cm.
