Thank you so much for the pattern!
 I've been wanting to knit a cloche for loooong time, but never find that perfect pattern. Now I have!

I just have to add to the chorus of oooohhs and aaaahhs.  This hat is so pretty! It's on my to-do list. *Sigh* So many things to make, so little time.

I bought navy mohair yesterday to make this hat and I'm going to put a cream grosgrain ribbon on it, with a flower made of something, I don't know yet.  I'm just going to say this pattern is awesome again.  I love how personal you can make it.  There are no less than ten gadzillion ways for this hat to turn out.

As many others have said, I've been searching for a cloche pattern forever, and I'm so happy you finally posted the pattern! I'm making mine with Katia's Mexico, in a beautiful royal blue, turquoise and cerulean colorway. THANK YOU! I'll try to post a picture when it's done!

Thanks so much for the pattern! This hat is great!

I have a question. This hat looks like it could be modified to look more like this hat from King Kong: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v34/princess_vernie/feltedclochesm.jpg

Any ideas on how to do it? The wrapped over part is what I'm really wondering about, but I'm also curious about the brim shaping. I have been in love with this hat for so long, and I really want to make it!

True knitting-nerdom, I believe: Everyone else I knew was saying, "Oh man, the [insert random King Kong action scene here] was AWESOME!" I was saying, "Oh man, that hat was AWESOME, I wonder if I could make it." :-D

There is a thread somewhere here about knit-spotting in the movies, it's my favorite pastime (next to knitting of course).

That said, I thing Eunny Jang wrote about this on her blog in these posts:


I haven't seen a finished one, and I don't know how I'd go about incorporating a fold into my pattern. I cast on and quickly decrease so the top is pretty fitted right away...for a fold, I'd say increase the cast on # and omit the initial decrease rounds. Then you could fold away the excess and tack it down.

KnitterMa, the Stirling is considered a bulky weight yarn but is a thin central strand (sport weight) surrounded by fluffy loops. http://www.yarn.com/yarns/stirling.html

Thanks. I think I'll try the pattern as is first, and then see what I can do for modifying it. It is a great hat I'll love to have even without the mods! What yarn would you recommend as a sub? I love the yarn you used, but it's a little much for my budget right now. Would something like Knitpicks' Suri Dream or Decandence work?

I am really glad to see a pattern here, and am looking at the stirling yarn right now on the site...

How close is the bright taupe yarn compared to your orginial photo of the cloche?  The color on my browser is quite a bit different and I know you said you were playing around in photoshop a bit! Wink

I love love love this hat!

Yayers!  Thank you for the pattern!!!!!  I'm thinking of knitting mine in this yarn http://secure.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=Austermann+Cleopatra&Season=&Company=&Cat=&ProductType=5&OrderBy=&Count=2 (almond ice).  ^_^  The only thing is, how many yards would it take? O_o...
