I wanted my own 20's style flapper hat, but most of the flapper hat patterns I could find online didn't have the distinctive bell shape of the classic cloche. So I improvised my own pattern, and I am really happy with the result. (Well, with version three and somewhat with two. Version one I'm not posting about. Wink)

This one is my favourite. I made it with two strands of yarn held together, one of Lion Brand wool in grey and one of Paton's Decor in pale aubergine. I really like the vintage, pink-grey heathered effect these yarns gave me. The ribbon's off an old top or something - the colour just happened to match.

This is my previous version, in Paton's Decor Aubergine and Red Heart black. I think it needs something - a flower or maybe a band, any thoughts?

(Forgive the slightly worried look, really I'm ok.)

Ok, here are basic instructions.

I used two strands of worsted weight yarn held together and a 6.0mm (J) hook.

Gauge: first two rounds in dc creates a circle about 2.5" (6 cm) in diameter. I crochet fairly tightly, so some people might go down a hook size to get this.

For the first six rows, I followed Yarncat's Basic Crown instructions here: http://www.yarncat.com/MFH-Basic-Crown.html.

For the grey hat, I did row 7 as dc each stitch around, as I have a rather small head. The other one I made a little larger: dc in 5 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch, repeat around.

Row 8 - 11: dc in each stitch around.

Row 12: dc in 9 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch, repeat around

Row 13: dc in each stitch around

Row 14: dc in next 3 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch, repeat around

Row 15: sc around. (I did this with two strands of one colour to give a nice edge.)

If anyone tries this, let me know if they have any problems or questions - I've never written a pattern down before.

I love you hats, great job! I like the second one just like it is but I think that a flower would look good too.

Please tell how you got the bell shape! Smiley

These are both really cute. For the darker one maybe you could add a flower with a vintage-looking button in the center? Looks good as is though.


Of course tattoos hurt...they're applied with needles, not kitten whiskers and bunny tails.

Oo I love it-- and I totally sympathize with the the difficulty in finding cloche patterns that aren't skull-caps.  I'd love instructions!

They are so cute! A pattern to get the bell shape would be very much appreciated. In my opinion, most hats can be improved by adding a flower. Cause I think crocheted flowers are so cute!

Ok, I've added a description of how I did it to the original post. If anyone makes one, let me know if it works! I may put the pattern on my blog or something later.

I like the idea of a flower with a vintage button, if I can find one...
