Crocheted Cloche Hat


This is MY version of the fabulous Cloche Hat. It's sized to fit an average woman's head.

  • Size 6mm crochet hook
  • 12 ply yarn (I used Moda Vera Marvel)

Round 2: ch 1, 2 hdc in ea st around, join (14hdc)
Round 3: ch 1, *1 hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st* rep around, join (21hdc)
Round 4: ch 1, *1 hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st* rep around, join (28hdc)

Your increases should line up as you work your way from round to round.
Round 10-19 : rep Rnd 9
Once the body of the hat is as long you as want (work less or more rows to get the length you want) you start on your brim as follows.
Round 20: ch 1, in back loops only, *1 hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st* rep around, join (84hdc)
Round 21: ch 1, 1 hdc in ea st around, join.
Round 22-24: rep Round 20
Round 25: ch 1, sc into each stitch to the end of the row. Fasten off.

Abbreviations:
  • ch = chain
  • ea = each
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • sc = single crochet
  • st = stitch
  • rep = repeat
Adorn your hat with a flower made as follows:
size 5 mm hook and yarn

Chain 30
(dc,ch 3, slip st, {ch 3, dc, ch 3, slip st} twice) all in the 4th ch from the hook, 
*(slip st, ch 3, dc, ch 3, slip st)* all in the next ch, repeat from * across the chain to the end. Fasten off.
Starting with the first 3 petals you made, spiral the petals around in layers and stitch in place from the back.
Stitch firmly to your hat.
