This hat shape was worn by women in the 1920’s and the basket weave knit, known as ‘links/links’ to knitters, adds to the period feel.
Squizzy Taylor was a famous Melbourne gangster around that time. Squizzy’s ‘patch’ was near to where our factory is located. When we designed this cloche his name came to mind.
Squizzy is knitted on our 4 gauge machine using 100% Merino Lambswool run through a plaiting feeder to achieve the contrast effect.
