Today I finished my version of Anthropologie's cloche hat as seen in the Fall '05 catalog.

I used buttons from my gran's button tin and other odds and ends.





The colors are much more muted and vintage-y looking in person. When I showed the picture in the catalog to my mom, she said "I hope you are going to make better flowers than theirs!"

Here is the pattern:

CLOCHE: 
Acrylic worsted weight yarn
Patons Divine yarn for trim, or some sort of fluffy mohair type yarn
Size L Crochet Hook
Work in both front and back loops
Mark each round as you work
Size issues: I have a big head so I needed to increase the size at Round 11. Try it on and see if you need the increase at that point, if not, just repeat Round 6 again.
 
Round 1: Chain 2, work 8 half-double crochet (hdc) in 2nd chain from hook

Round 2: Work 2 hdc in each stitch around

Round 3: 2 hdc in next stitch, 1 hdc in next stitch, repeat all the way around

Round 4: Hdc in next 2 stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch, repeat all the way around

Round 5: Repeat row 4, hdc in remaining stitches

Round 6 through 10: Hdc in each stitch all the way around

Round 11: Hdc in next 2 stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch, repeat all the way around

Round 12 through 17 (or to preferred length) : Hdc in each stitch all the way around

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Trim Round: Pull yarn through loop where you ended main color. Hdc all the way around, fasten off and weave in ends.

SMALL PURPLE FLOWER: 
Acrylic worsted weight yarn
Size E Crochet Hook
Needle and thread
Sequins for embellishment

Round 1: Chain 4, join with slip stitch to form ring

Round 2: Chain 3, 13 double crochet (dc) in ring, join with slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3.

Round 3: Chain 6, slip stitch in the top of the second dc from hook (so you are skipping a stitch), repeat all the way around making 7 petals, fasten off.

Embellish with sequins with needle and thread.

BEIGE FLOWER: 
Mercerized cotton, or 100% Egyptian cotton thread
Size E Crochet Hook
Needle and thread
Beads and button for embellishment

SMALL GREEN FLOWER: 
Acrylic worsted weight yarn
Size E Crochet Hook
Button for embellishment

Round 1: Chain 4, join with slip stitch to form ring

Round 2: Chain 3, 9 double crochet (dc) in ring, join with slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3.

Round 3: Chain 2, *4 dc in next stitch, slip stitch in next stitch, repeat from * around making 5 petals, fasten off.

LARGE BROWN FLOWER: 
Acrylic worsted weight yarn, medium brown and dark brown
Size E Crochet Hook
Buttons for embellishment
(Rounds 1-4 are from the pattern at http://www.yarncat.com/flowercoasters.html)

Round 1: Starting with medium brown yarn, chain 4, join with slip stitch to form ring

Round 2: Chain 3, 11 double crochet (dc) in ring, join with slip stitch to top of beginning chain 3.

Round 3: Work in spaces between dcs,slip stitch in 1st space,chain 3,dc in same space. 2 dc in next space and in each space around, join with a slip stitch to 1st dc

Round 4: Work in spaces between dcs,slip stitch in 1st space,chain 2,dc in next space,chain 3,*(yo, insert hook in next space,yo and pull up a loop,yo and draw through 2 loops on hook)twice,yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook,chain 3, repeat from * around. Skip beg ch-2 and join with a slip stitch to 1st dc

Round 5: Switch to dark brown yarn, *1 single crochet (sc) in next chain 3 space, 3 dc in same space, 1 sc in same space, chain 1*, repeat from * around, join with slip stitch at end.

FINISHING: 
I left the ends long on all of the flowers so I could tie them onto the cloche before sewing them down permanently. Try your cloche on before you sew them down and make sure you like the position, it looks different when it's on because it stretches.

I sewed the beads, sequins, and the brown flower buttons on before I attached them to the cloche. For the beige and green flowers, I sewed the button down through the centers to the cloche.

Add any other buttons or embellishments and enjoy! I hope you love it and I especially hope I didnt make any weird mistakes when trying to write the pattern out.

Thanks for the compliments!

The main part is plain old worsted weight acrylic with a row of Paton's Divine for the trim around the bottom.

The flowers & doily things are all made from scraps of acrylic except for the light brown beaded one. That one was made with Stork by Dale of Norway, it's 100% Egyptian cotton I had left over from a shawl I knitted.

It was made up of bits and pieces of different patterns I found on the web, but if enough people want me to write it all out, I will.  Smiley
