I love flowers. I think they make anything look prettier...
I wanted a winter hat that will fit me. Last winter, I had locs -so all my hats are too big for me. I made this hat last night and the flower this morning. This hat is super easy to make and quick! I did it in about an hour and a half. Let me know if you want the pattern. I am gonna make one for this hat, soon. Thanx for looking!
UPDATE: Here is the pattern. Pssst. Go here for pattern w/pictures and a printable option:http://sensitivesnapdragon.blogspot.com/2011/10/cloche-pattern.html

Now post to Facebook and get ready for requests from friends and family! Enjoy!
Notes on how to make the hat larger/smaller.
1. Chain a greater or lessor amount to make the height of the hat more or less. After you complete the first row, you can measure against your head by putting the thinner end at the center of the crown of your head.
2. Increase or decrease number of rows to make the diameter of the hat more or less (preferable ending with an even row - to make sc UP the hat simpler - without having unnecessary tails)
