Bringing the Cloche Hat into the 21st Century in three sizes

Bringing the Cloche Hat into the 21st Century in three sizes

whhop whoop, ? I just finished designing and making my first cloche hat. I have called the crochet pattern Cloche Sun Hat

My challenge? To design a hat crochet pattern to incorporate a unique back flip hat, cloche style with a “built-in” bow as one continuous pattern, and not applied afterward. Really chuffed at the result ?

The Cloche crochet hat instructions come in three sizes; Small, medium, and large.

The whole piece is worked in a spiral, in the round in single crochet with RS facing throughout.  It is therefore not joined with a slst at the end of each round.  The bow is also worked with the brim of the hat as a continued one piece with cap
Although I have given instructions on how to stiffen the brim edge, this is not essential
You will find this round-by-round pattern instruction is easy and relaxing to recreate

Although I did not use Raffia as I prefer something softer on my head, nothing stops you however from using raffia as a substitute,  as long as you watch your gauge

Of course, the front decoration is optional. You can put anything or nothing at all.  I used silk flowers which I separated each bud, leaf and then attached first the rose, then the leaves, and lastly the buds by applying hot glue

Did you know the pattern, as with all my patterns, as a thank you gift to you, I include in your instant downloadable .pdf pattern a print-to-cut out & make a matching pattern envelop to store your pattern. You can get the pattern, Cloche Sun Hat directly from my website or directly from this link
