I would tend top call this particular style of hat a "skull cap" rather than a cloche, but then I'm a big dork.  Marnie Mclean offers both styles.

I would agree with you, since what makes a cloche a cloche is the fact that it is bell-shaped. That's where the name comes from. Erte is the only true cloche pattern I've seen out there, because most people use a skullcap or bucket pattern and call it a cloche.

a cloche, by definition, is bell-shaped.  and i am pretty sure you are thinking of the ones that have the slight edge that sticks out (like a bell) or folds up (you see alot of pictures with the 1930s, 40s costume via a google search).  but if you go to http://www.vintage-crochet-patterns.com/beehat70.html, you can see that the picture that referecen pg. 11 has a crocheted cloche that looks quite similar to the original post.  i think the crocheted cloches are close fitting to the head and worn the way daria and nushybum has it pictured.  rather than covering straight down on the head (the way i would wear a beanie), its towards the back of the head (sorry my anatomy has escaped me and i can't think of the right term.)

awesome cloche btw.  i'm really glad i found this board.  so many neat stuff and talented people.

I think I'm going to be making a bunch of these for Christmas gifts.  I love how quickly it knits up.  Thanks for linking the pattern!
My version:

keyyoung, i LOVE your version of the hat.  tell me, how did you make that flower?  did you make it up.  it's so pretty.

anyhoo, whatever the hell kind of hat it is (cloche, skull cap, beanie, etc.), i think we can all agree it is a great pattern.  Smiley

Haha, I wish I were a talented enough knitter to have come up with that flower design!  I found it linked in another thread on this board, you can find the pattern at http://www.eoinadesigns.com/knitflower.html
It's a great little pattern, but it took me longer to make the flower than the hat  Tongue

That's adorable!
How come EVERY cloche pattern is CROCHET?
Even though I own like 2 of every size hooks, the art of crocheting is ever elusive to me!

It's actually a bit easier and faster than knitting.  Just the stitches aren't as pretty..
