Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit-in-the-round
  • k2tog
  • Garter Stitch
  • Stockinette Stitch

Pattern Description:

I had several requests for an "adult" version of the baby's flapper style cloche. I finally finished creating and knitting a few. Instead of bulky yarn, I used worsted weight yarn and double-stranded it. The hat is very warm and stretchy. It is deep like the hats that were worn in the 1920's. The brim can be worn several different ways - your choice.

This is an easy project for those who have some experience knitting in the round on a circular needle. It uses only the Garter and Stockinette stitches. You choose whether to use double pointed needles for the crown or use the magic loop technique (instructions for this may be found on the Internet).

Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" was used to create this hat. I was too lazy to knit or crochet a flower, so I went out and purchased a silk flower barrette, and I really like how it looks!
