Yes, it's true. I am a Downton Abbey fan. I have been watching for three seasons now. One of the best parts of the New Year 2013 was the beginning of the new season of Downton Abbey! Fortunately I'm not alone in my obsession with all things Downton. Our Downton Abbey Knit-along features three cloche hats which you might find Lady Mary or Sybil wearing. So grab some needles and knit-along with us. The Lucy hat was featured in Knitscene Winter 2012. I'm on my third Lucy in Madeline Tosh Vintage. Designed for Tosh Vintage, this cloche looks great in a variety of color combinations. My daughter Abby wearing the LUCY HAT. Our second hat, the NOLA Cloche is a FREE pattern available on Ravelry. I can just imagine Anna donning this beauty to visit her wrongfully imprisoned husband, Bates. FREE BATES!!!! Our model was knitted in Tosh Vintage Worn Denim. (available at THE NEST or www.thenestyarn.com ). The Nola Cloche has an interesting twist along one side. The third hat in the Downton Abbey Knit-along is called THE NEST CLOCHE. It's a great hat for a beginner learning to knit in the round. The flower is very simple too. THE NEST CLOCHE is available in a kit with FREE PATTERN on our website and in THE NEST. Daisy the cook might be working on this as she sits on strike in the kitchen! She'd look darling in it! Keep watching and knitting with all of us at THE NEST. You can just jump in and knit--- but watch out ---you never know who's lurking around the corner!!!!!
