Lavender Cloche
by Jessica Spencer

I love wearing hats (partially because I hate doing my hair!) and while I typically love wearing the slouchy hat style, I wanted something different. So I figured I'd try out the cloche style of hat this time around. I seriously love it! I kind of wonder why I've never made one before. These hats where huge in the 1920's and I'm thinking it's time they make a comeback!

  • 137 yards of bulky weight yarn (Shown in Chaleur Hand Dyed Yarn “Lavender Satchet”)
  • Size J (6.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Size K (6.5 mm) crochet hook
  • Brooch or button (optional)
Abbreviations (US terms):
  • ch: chain
  • dc: double crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
