I have looked FOREVER for a cute cloche pattern to knit (I can't crochet, and every single cloche pattern I find is crochet)! This is the one! It really turned out beautifully - I especially like the choice of yarn. Awesome texture. I'll be first in line to buy the book! Good luck!

Just wanted to bring this thread up again...  Someone mentioned a book, "One-Skein Wonders" by Judith Durant.  It's not supposed to come out until October!  If this is the book I'm going to be sad I have to wait so long, but I suppose it would be just in time for the cool weather... Undecided

Hi everyone who liked my cloche--I just got word from Storey publishing that my pattern was accepted, whoo-hoo! Even better, I retain all rights to the pattern so here it is! I have it as a nice neat Word document as well, if anyone would prefer that, just send me a message and your email address.

Stirling Cloche
by Cirilia Rose

Sartorial historians believe that the cloche was popular with 1920s flappers because of the proud gaze it required of its wearer--chin tilted skyward and eyes peering down the nose. This version features a double-strand of a lustrous mohair loop and is slightly felted to fit the wearer.

Materials:

1 skein Valley Yarns Stirling (Bright Taupe shown here) (available from Webs, www.yarn.com)
1 size US#10/6mm 16 circular needle
1 set US#10/6mm double pointed needles

Gauge: 12 sts/16 rows=4 (pre-felting gauge)

Directions: Using two strands held together, cast 90 stitches onto circular needle. Place marker and join, being careful not to twist.

Work even until hat measures 2.5 from cast-on edge. On next round *K7, k2tog, repeat from * to end of round. Knit one round. On next round, *K6, k2tog, repeat from *. Knit even until hat measures 5.5 from cast-on edge. Work remaining decrease rounds as follows:

Round 1: *K5, k2tog, repeat from * to end.
Round 2, 4, 6, 8, 10: knit.
Round 3: *K4, k2tog, repeat from * to end.
Round 5: *K3, k2tog, repeat from * to end.
Round 7: *K2, k2tog, repeat from * to end.
Round 9: *K1, k2tog, repeat from * to end.
Round 11: k2tog across row, 7 stitches remain.

Cut yarn and using tapestry needle thread through remaining stitches, draw tight.

Wash hat by hand using hot soapy water and vigorous agitation. Squeeze dry and pull into shape. Allow to dry fully over a bowl or similar form. Embellish as desired!

Enjoy =)

Congratulations on being accepted.  I'm definetely going to attempt this pattern once I get over my fear of felting and I finish all the baby things I am doing for other people so roughly 2008.
