Short story: Loved this pattern... bought the recommended yarn... wound yarn into balls...began to cast on... much swearing and gnashing of teeth...yarn now in garbage. 

This was the single most horrific yarn experience I've ever had.  It was devil yarn, made by the devil himself, designed to drive me completely insane.  Giant, terrible tumbleweed-like knots grew into a mass of yarn so huge and impenetrable, it threatened to engulf me and my dog.  Finally, after hours of wrangling with it, overcome by a fit of rage and frustration, I dumped the mess in the trash and vowed never to speak again of "the yarn that shall not be named." 

Still love the pattern though...maybe it would look nice done up in simple Lamb's Pride?

great job!  I love the cloche!  I was actually just at Webs today, and I was disappointed that you weren't there!

I made this hat a little bit ago, and I love it =) mine is plain grey wool, instead of the reccomended yarn. I was a bit worried when I was knitting it that it looked misshapen, but it turned out lovely.

Ooh, pretty.

My sister bought me that One Skein Wonders book for Christmas and I was excited to see the patterns.  It was kind of a letdown.  Undecided

Actually, your hat pattern was one of only 2 patterns in the book I really liked!  I ended up selling the book on ebay, but now I have the hat pattern since i just discovered this thread!  Cheesy  Like other knitters out there, I've wanted to knit a cloche FOREVER but could never find a pattern. 

It's a beautiful hat and you model it wonderfully. Thanks so much for giving us the pattern!

it makes me sad that this yarn is 20$ a skein...im just a poor student!! maybe one day i'll convince myself the investment is worth it bc rather than buying one at like nordstroms (where by the way they have these but for like 5x the price)

Thanks so much skrillaknits for such a great pattern! I have loved this cute cloche since I first saw it. Now I have one right in time for summer!

yarns held together throughout:
KnitPicks Merino Style (100% merino wool, 123 yds, color-Moss) and Himalayan Yarn Co. (60% wool and 40% silk, 175 yds)
The flower is knit with only Himalayan Yarn Co.
I had yarn left over from each skein of yarn...all told I probably used less than 100yds of each for the hat (a little more for the flower).

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

wow, AWynkoop that looks fantastic. I love the yarn you've used, and the hat band and flower compliment the hat wonderfully, well done.
