The Bootlegger’s Bonnet PDF Knitting Pattern
A modern take using the classic cloche silhouette, the Bootleggers Bonnet is a simple and iconic hat that can take you from season to season. The brim is meant to be worn low on the forehead, creating an aire of mystery to the wearer. A subtle zig zag stitch band and accent play up the art deco theme. Knit one up in wool for the winter and a cotton blend for warmer months.
You can attach the embellishment to the left side but traditionally decorative items are on the right side. Typically, these hats are worn low on the forehead, covering the eyes, making the wearer throw their head back, peering snootily down their nose. You can have fun and peer snootily as much or as little as you wish!
